Share Article

Earth Fever, Living Consciously with Climate Change is a book that uniquely combines the current state of climate science with social, personal and even spiritual aspects of dealing with climate change.

A timely and highly original approach to climate change

Will we wait till each scientist in the world agrees about the science behind climate change?

Will we wait till governments, politicians and international organizations agree to every single detail in addressing this threat facing the world?

Or do we start today as individuals in our workplace and in our communities to create a future that allows for a healthy environment, a dignified society, and a peaceful world?

With a change of consciousness and a new spirituality, this is possible, according to the authors of a new book Earth Fever, Living Consciously with Climate Change.

Earth Fever uniquely combines the current state of climate science with social, personal and even spiritual aspects of dealing with climate change. The three authors Judy McAllister, Erik van Praag, and Jan Paul van Soest use their considerable experience with sustainability, holistic education and transformational leadership to describe the change of consciousness and the community environment that is needed to tackle the global problem of climate change and its effects.

In addition, the authors show by interviewing a number of international thought leaders, executives and scientists, such as the former CEO of Royal Dutch Shell Jeroen van der Veer, management consultant Peter Senge, cultural creative Paul Ray, and others, how an enlightened way of thinking and acting will impact the Earth’s climate in a positive way. This book is not just a call to action for every citizen of the world, but also includes an appeal to the governments and leaders of the world to take personal responsibility to address climate change.

Earth Fever has already received positive feedback and wide praise from various corners:

“Links a crisp and clear explanation of the climate problem to a spiritual quest for solutions … Earth Fever is something special … Read it and subsequently do something.” -- Pierre de Winter, Platform for Managers and Professionals

“Inspiring … the authors show that there is a third way, a path that weaves between doomsday thinking and unfounded optimism…” -- Derk Hueting and Klaas van Egmond, Milieu
