To Save America through Newt Gingrich

To Save America: Stopping Obama’s Secular-Socialist Machine through Newt Gingrich
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.1 Mb
Overview: Newt Gingrich’s New York Times bestseller, To Save America, is now in paperback! Featuring a brand new bankruptcy and entirely up to date all the way through, To Save America will be offering the primary essential research of the 2010 elections and can divulge what Republicans will have to do to get the rustic again heading in the right direction. “History is repeating itself,” says Newt. “Republicans took again the House, identical to we did in 1994.” Candidly discussing what Republicans did right-and wrong-last time they took again energy, To Save America will provide an explanation for how we will be able to steer clear of previous errors and roll again the Obama management’s secular-socialist mechanical device. “The Left is actively operating to demolish our core values and ideology and substitute them with their very own," publicizes Gingrich. “How? Through a secular-socialist machine-a corrupt forms which makes use of manipulation and dishonesty to steamroll the desire of the folk and ruin our nice country.” In the brand new paperback version of To Save America, Gingrich provides concrete methods for dismantling this mechanical device and changing it with insurance policies that paintings. And now that Republicans have regained the House, we have now a chance we can not manage to pay for to squander.

Cows Save the Planet by Judith D. Schwartz

Cows Save the Planet: And Other Improbable Ways of Restoring Soil to Heal the Earth by Judith D. Schwartz
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 292 MB
Overview: In Cows Save the Planet, journalist Judith D. Schwartz looks at soil as a crucible for our many overlapping environmental, economic, and social crises. Schwartz reveals that for many of these problems – climate change, desertification, biodiversity loss, droughts, floods, wildfires, rural poverty, malnutrition, and obesity – there are positive, alternative scenarios to the degradation and devastation we face. In each case, our ability to turn these crises into opportunities depends on how we treat the soil.
Drawing on the work of thinkers and doers, renegade scientists and institutional whistleblowers from around the world, Schwartz challenges much of the conventional thinking about global warming and other problems. For example, land can suffer from undergrazing as well as overgrazing, since certain landscapes, such as grasslands, require the disturbance from livestock to thrive. Regarding climate, when we focus on carbon dioxide, we neglect the central role of water in soil – "green water" – in temperature regulation. And much of the carbon dioxide that burdens the atmosphere is not the result of fuel emissions, but from agriculture; returning carbon to the soil not only reduces carbon dioxide levels but also enhances soil fertility.
Cows Save the Planet is at once a primer on soil’s pivotal role in our ecology and economy, a call to action, and an antidote to the despair that environmental news so often leaves us with.

The Soil Will Save Us by Kristin Ohlson

The Soil Will Save Us: How Scientists, Farmers, and Foodies Are Healing the Soil to Save the Planet by Kristin Ohlson
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 2.63 MB
Overview: Thousands of years of poor farming and ranching practices-and, especially, modern industrial agriculture-have led to the loss of up to 80 percent of carbon from the world’s soils. That carbon is now floating in the atmosphere, and even if we stopped using fossil fuels today, it would continue warming the planet. In The Soil Will Save Us, journalist and bestselling author Kristin Ohlson makes an elegantly argued, passionate case for "our great green hope"-a way in which we can not only heal the land but also turn atmospheric carbon into beneficial soil carbon-and potentially reverse global warming.

As the granddaughter of farmers and the daughter of avid gardeners, Ohlson has long had an appreciation for the soil. A chance conversation with a local chef led her to the crossroads of science, farming, food, and environmentalism and the discovery of the only significant way to remove carbon dioxide from the air-an ecological approach that tends not only to plants and animals but also to the vast population of underground microorganisms that fix carbon in the soil. Ohlson introduces the visionaries-scientists, farmers, ranchers, and landscapers-who are figuring out in the lab and on the ground how to build healthy soil, which solves myriad problems: drought, erosion, air and water pollution, and food quality, as well as climate change. Her discoveries and vivid storytelling will revolutionize the way we think about our food, our landscapes, our plants, and our relationship to Earth.

Beauty Will Save the World by Brian Zahnd

Beauty Will Save the World: Rediscovering the Allure and Mystery of Christianity by Brian Zahnd
Requirements: .MOBI reader, 1.2MB
Overview: In today’s world we have technology, convenience, security, and a measure of prosperity, but where is the beauty?

For thousands of years, artists, sages, philosophers, and theologians have connected the beautiful and the sacred and identified art with our longing for God. Now we live in a day when convenience and practicality have largely displaced beauty as a value. The church is no exception. Even salvation is commonly viewed in a scientific and mechanistic manner and presented as a plan, system, or formula.

In Beauty Will Save the World, Brian Zahnd presents the argument that this loss of beauty as a principal value has been disastrous for Western culture, and especially for the church. The full message of the beauty of the gospel has been replaced by our desires to satisfy our material needs, to empirically prove our faith, and to establish political power in our world–the exact same things that Christ was tempted with and rejected in the wilderness.

Zahnd shows that by following the teachings of the Beatitudes, the church can become a viable alternative to current-day political, commercial, and religious power and can actually achieve what these powers promise to provide but fail to deliver. Using stories from the lives of St. Francis of Assisi and from his own life, he teaches us to stay on the journey to discover the kingdom of God in a fuller, richer, more beautiful, way.
