Earthly Order

How Natural Laws Define Human Life
Saleem H. Ali

Current debates in politics often present what should constitute a ‘world order’ while scientists have wrestled with what are fundamental conditions of ‘natural order.’ Humanity has either tried to conquer or capitulate to natural order, whereas Earthly Order: How Natural Laws Define Human Life provides a readable synthesis of these    debates with practical guidance for the public with a host of current examples around  environmental decision-making by consumers, the government and industry.

With Earthly Order, Saleem Ali presents a grand, sprawling exploration of the scientific realm in search of simplicity in nature and order in our human planet. What he uncovers is revealing and provocative in equal measure - a fresh lens to look at the social, economic, political and environmental challenges of our unsustainable age - Professor Iain Stewart, Host of BBC Series, How Earth Made Us, UNESCO Chair in Geoscience and Society, Royal Scientific Society of Jordan
