Blue Planet & Beyond describes the history of Easter Island, from its geologic formation, through the period of massive stone-statue erection, to today’s efforts by Rapanui inhabitants to regenerate their society. Paralleling this discussion, the book recaps the formation of the Earth, the development of its living systems, and the role humanity plays - past, present, and future - in influencing the history of the planet.
Jeff Barbour wrote Blue Planet & Beyond to give powerful voice to the need to re-align all aspects of human endeavor along two main lines: Ecological Sustainability, and Interstellar Space Colonization. Along the way, Jeff summarizes what is known about Easter Island, and Earth-Island of which it is a smaller reflection. Readers develop a comprehensive understanding of all issues associated with Easter Island and planet Earth based on an extraordinary foundation of facts and ideas illuminated by many aspects of contemporary knowledge. But most importantly, readers will come to understand how every choice made today impacts the future of the Blue Planet and its many species.
“Blue Planet & Beyond is not “Collapse”. This book clearly reveals the deeper, more psychological causes behind Easter Island’s environmental woes. Meanwhile, it also removes any doubt that Earth-Island is heading in the same direction as Easter Island.” says the author, who goes on to say, “Yet the midnight hour of irreversible damage to Earth-Island has yet to strike. Within the next few decades, our world will have changed significantly - one way or another.”
