CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $23.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Biotechnology — the future or a genetic time bomb? Renewable fuels — the key to cleaner air or just corporate welfare? Greenhouse gasses — baking the earth to death or just a needless worry? Plant patents — improving gardens and farms or just profiteering? When you stop to think about it, the government has its hand in every important environmental issue. And with the left and the right raucously disagreeing about whether the government’s policies are for good or for evil, it’s impossible for a concerned citizen to know what to think.

How the Government Got in Your Backyard distills the science, the politics, and the unbiased, nonpartisan truth behind hot-button environmental issues from pesticides to global warming. By clearly representing what the left says, what the right says, what the science is, and what the facts are, Jeff Gillman and Eric Heberlig don’t set out to provide the answer — they light the path so concerned citizens can uncover their own true and informed opinion. In this season of political discontent, the unbiased truth about environmental policies — free of political agendas — is as refreshing as it is fascinating.

How the Government Got in Your Backyard is not for Republicans or Democrats, liberals or conservatives. It’s for anyone who is ready to get to the bottom line.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $17.95. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Chasing Chiles looks at both the future of place-based foods and the effects of climate change on agriculture through the lens of the chile pepper — from the farmers who cultivate this iconic crop to the cuisines and cultural traditions in which peppers play a huge role.

Why chile peppers? Both a spice and a vegetable, chile peppers have captivated imaginations and taste buds for thousands of years. Native to Mesoamerica and the New World, chiles are currently grown on every continent, since their relatively recent introduction to Europe (in the early 1500s via Christopher Columbus). Chiles are delicious, dynamic, and very diverse — they have been rapidly adopted, adapted and assimilated into numerous world cuisines, and while malleable to a degree, certain heirloom varieties are deeply tied to place and culture — but now accelerating climate change may be scrambling their terroir.

Over a year-long journey, three pepper-loving gastronauts — an agroecologist, a chef and an ethnobotanist — set out to find the real stories of America’s rarest heirloom chile varieties, and learn about the changing climate from farmers and other people who live by the pepper, and who, lately, have been adapting to shifting growing conditions and weather patterns. They put a face on an issue that has been made far too abstract for our own good.

Chasing Chiles is not your archetypal book about climate change, with facts and computer models delivered by a distant narrator. On the contrary, these three dedicated chileheads look and listen, sit down to eat, and get stories and recipes from on the ground — in farmers' fields, local cafes and the desert-scrub hillsides across North America. From the Sonoran Desert to Santa Fe and St. Augustine (the two oldest cities in the United States), from the marshes of Avery Island in Cajun Louisiana to the thin limestone soils of the Yucatan, this book looks at how and why climate change will continue to affect our palates and our producers, and how it already has.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $4.99 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Add style and sustainability to your kitchen with a sturdy, 10-inch-long serving spoon. With a nearly 2-inch-wide bamboo spoon complete with a stainless steel handle, this serving spoon will add style to your kitchen in addition to being an extremely useful serving utensil.

With a bamboo end that's nearly 2 inches wide and a stainless steel handle, this serving spoon will add style to your kitchen in addition to being an extremely useful serving utensil. Tough, durable and lightweight, bamboo is a natural in the kitchen. One of nature's most sustainable resources, bamboo is stronger than oak and reaches maturity in just four years — without pesticides. Bamboo's density makes it naturally water-resistant, which inhibits germs and bacteria. It won't scratch your pans like metal and doesn't absorb moisture like conventional wood.

Though used like timber, bamboo is a grass that self-propagates as it spreads underground via a network of rhizomes. A white oak tree takes 120 years to grow to maturity; bamboo takes three-and-a-half to seven years. This self-regenerating plant grows without pesticides and needs very little water; some species grow as much as 3 feet a day. Because of its fast growth rate, bamboo sequesters carbon dioxide at faster rates than hardwood trees — another bonus for the environment.

Stainless steel does not leach chemicals, and the stainless steel used in this product is 93 percent recycled. The grade of the stainless steel used is 18.8.

Care instructions: Hand wash only.

Inspirational houses from around the world: how architects and home owners can achieve harmony between dwellings and nature

Our houses can be seen as living, breathing entities, extensions of ourselves and our families. This carefully considered publication provides the design inspiration to build and live in domestic spaces in a balanced, natural, sustainable way.

With the demands of all contemporary dwellings in mind-whether they're found in the city, suburbs, or country-Dominic Bradbury considers the design basics one must follow in order to coexist with the planet's resources.

Five chapters present successful projects from different parts of the globe, all specially photographed by Richard Powers.

  • Design and Build: where and how to create a modern natural home
  • Let There Be Light: manipulating the elements to improve lifestyle and interaction with nature
  • The Material World: using natural products to establish healthier relationships with the environment
  • Indoor/Outdoor Living: ideas for encouraging symbiotic relationships with the landscape, whether in the city or the country
  • Sustainable Footprints: how to naturally reduce domestic energy use
The book includes case studies and plans, a directory of architects, and a listing of featured houses, materials, and useful products.

Dominic Bradbury contributes frequently to architecture and design publications and is the author of Mediterranean Modern. He lives in England. Richard Powers is an architectural photographer whose previous books include Tropical Minimal. He lives in France.

More and more people are eating organic food. Once derided as a “hippie fad,” today organic is the fastest growing segment of the United States food industry with consumer demand increasing by nearly 20 percent each year. No longer confined to natural food stores, organic food is now on supermarket shelves, served in restaurants and fast food chains, and even sold at national parks and major league baseball stadiums. Many schools and colleges, such as Yale and Stanford, now serve organic food to their students. People are choosing organic because they want healthier and safer alternative to “conventional” food with its use of toxic pesticides, antibiotics, hormones, and genetic engineering.

The Organic Food Handbook examines this important trend and provides a concise, easy-to-follow guide to eating and buying organic food. It clearly explains what organic food is and how it is produced, and where to buy it at the most economical prices. The book also covers:

  • How conventional food poses threats to health and the environment
  • Why organic is a healthier, safer choice all of us
  • How organic certification ensures that organic food is produced to the highest standards
As this book shows, organic food clearly benefits our personal health as well as the health of our environment. Eating organic contributes to a more sustainable world and a healthier future. Author Ken Roseboro wants us all to benefit and provides the information consumers need to know to make eating healthy, organic foods a priority in their lives.

Just reading the word "subsidies" may cause people's eyes to glaze over. We don't think it affects us directly, so we tune out. But it turns out that this complicated-sounding issue has an enormous impact on all of us. The Big Handout is about bad fiscal, environmental, agricultural, water, energy, health, and foreign policies. And it's a story about just one thing-subsidies. A subsidy is a grant by the government to a private business that is deemed advantageous to the public. Cotton, wheat, corn, soy, and oil are the most subsidized commodities in the United States. In this eye-opening book, New York Times best-selling author Thomas Kostigen explores government policies that cost taxpayers $200 billion per year, over $1,500 per household. In some cases we pay more for subsidized goods than we'd pay in a free market-and, in the most shocking abuses of the subsidy system, we pay for goods that aren't even produced.

The Big Handout exposes how artificial pricing hurts us and people worldwide, from our waistlines and pocketbooks to our health. By revealing just how toxic America's subsidy system has become, for everyone, The Big Handout is a wake-up call that empowers readers to effect change.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $26.00. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

In EcoMind, Frances Moore Lappé — a giant in the environmental movement — confronts accepted wisdom of environmentalism. Drawing on the latest research from anthropology to neuroscience and her own field experience, she argues that the biggest challenge to human survival isn’t our fossil fuel dependency, melting glaciers or other calamities. Rather, it’s our faulty way of thinking about these environmental crises that robs us of power. Lappé dismantles seven common “thought traps”— from limits to growth to the failings of democracy — that believe what we now know about nature, including our own, and offers contrasting “thought leaps” that reveal our hidden power. Like her Diet for a Small Planet classic, EcoMind is challenging, controversial and empowering.
