David Orr

Earlier this week at Writers Read, Maddalena Bearzi praised "David Orr’s book Earth in Mind [as] a 'must read' for those of us who feel our planet is becoming totally unsustainable or for those who don’t know enough about the environmental issues facing us in the near future."

Which led me to ask Orr what he was reading. His reply:
just finished Simon Schama's Citizen, reading Paul Robert's The End of Food; and Richard Heinberg's Peak Everything.
David Orr is the Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics at Oberlin College and a James Marsh Professor at the University of Vermont.
