On the Survival of Humanity

9.99

In the tenth decade of his life, Risteard Mulcahy comes forward with his twelfth and final book. The visionary former cardiologist puts into words a lifetime of environmental activism and reflection on our relationship with the natural world. With dedication and thorough research, the author pulls us into a believable dystopia, where resources are scarce and the limitations of our planet have been pushed beyond repair. If we continue the way we are going, there is little hope left for the future of the earth. Risteard’s view of the future is bleak, but his outlining of his ideas for change are what makes this an ultimately hopeful book. It is full of wisdom and grace, and a lifetime of observation and love for our home planet. This is a man who in the words of Senator Marie-Louise O’Donnell “always shakes up conventional wisdom”.
