This book approaches the study of the environment from two academic disciplines: both sociologists and philosophers have concerns about our environmentas ability not only to sustain itself but to thrive. The book examines the differences between asustainabilitya and athrivability.a Such topics as the sixth mass extinction (now underway), fracking, plastics, food waste and deforestation are explored. The book also considers the skepticism about humansa being the cause of a deteriorating environment and details natureas adverse role in harming the environment. Finally, the text gives reasons why choosing a thrivability approach is not only (obviously) beneficial but quite possible, and discusses practical ways in which thrivability can be taught.A Thriving Environment Tim Delaney, Tim Madigan.
