download º eBook or Kindle ePUB » Jonas Salk review Ä A New Reality A New Reality Human Evolution for a Sustainable Future provides a. My interview with Jonathan Salk about the reissued version of his book with his father Dr Jonas Salk UNTIL ONLY RECENTLY the whole of human history has been marked by population growth first gradual and then in the past two hundred years a sudden explosion But in the last decades of the 20th century population growth began to slow and eventually it will plateau or even declineThe moment at which growth goes from accelerating to decelerating according to a theory posited by Dr Jonas Salk and his son Jonathan Salk in their book World Population and Human Values A New Reality is called an inflection point and would be filled with turmoil and conflict but also opportunityAlthough Salk is celebrated worldwide as the developer of one of the first successful polio vaccines the famed virologist spent many of his later years developing this theory on population growthBased on observations of biology that show population growth tends to form an sigmoid or S curve Salk predicted that worldwide population growth accelerating from less than 1 billion in 1804 to 7 billion by the end of the 20th Century would reach an inflection point and then begin to slow into a plateauSalk characterizes the time before the inflection point as Epoch A and in that period people were focused on their own betterment and achievement as necessary to capitalize on the potential for great growth But going forward after the inflection point in Epoch B people will need to be collaborative and sustainability oriented This plays out now in issues like climate change where the world must work together to combat the issueThe original publication of the Salks book was met with little commercial success But nearly four decades on Jonathan Salk has seen many of the theories posited by his father who died in 1995 beginning to come true Salk now a psychiatrist recently spoke with US News about the revised book A New Reality Human Evolution for a Sustainable Future and how this unprecedented moment in human history will shape our future ExcerptsWhy revise and reissue this book nowIn the years since publication I noticed that a lot of the things we had thought about were coming to pass particularly in terms of adjusting sustainability and global warming but also in terms of a lot of social and political trendsThe book has a particular kind of resonance and a particular kind of relevance at this moment in time because we re really seeing the pull between two differing value systems and making decisions as a species about how we re going to deal with the future It s always been a meaningful book but I think it s particularly poignant at this moment in timeWe re passing through a point of inflection where population growth is slowing throughout the Earth and heading toward a plateau To adapt and survive in Epoch A Epoch A values independence competition unfettered growth were advantageous to people But after the inflection point in Epoch B different values of cooperation of interdependence of sustainability take over At the inflection point the transition point between two sets of values is the point at which we re living today So there s a tremendous tension between moving forward with things like global agreements interdependence cooperation internationally and then there s a whole set of people who are wanting to recruit the values of the past the Epoch A valuesWhat are some examples of conflicts that are ongoing that you attribute to us currently being at the inflection pointThe most obvious one and the easiest one to get your head around has to do with climate change allocation of resources and use of human resources We came from a period of time for centuries where it seemed like resources were unlimited with unfettered consumption and unfettered disposal of waste That began to not be so advantageous particularly in the 60s 70s 80s 90s and there was a necessity to adapt to the limitations by consuming less and by coming up with a concept of sustainabilityThings were moving in that direction and what we ran into was there s two differing values systems and two different factions one wanting to go back to the growth model and do what was comfortable for centuries before and the other looking ahead and seeing what we could do to adapt to the fact that there are limits on growth and there s a plateau and a ceiling on how much we can expandWe re in a situation where we can t continue expanding We ve reached the limits of space and resources on the planet and energy Our values system based on expanding and growth which is what we had for many centuries won t work any We need to adapt to different kinds of social and political and economic models that are adapted to euilibrium as opposed to growth and that s where a concept like sustainability comes fromIt s clear that if we don t make adaptations we re going to alter the ecology of the Earth to the point where we may not be able to survive as a species But at the same time in order to adapt to that we have to take a look at the planet as interdependent and from a global point of view So that we understand that the welfare of human beings in the other part of the planet particularly in the developing world will have really important effects on our well being and that our well being is tied to the wellbeing of people and human beings all over the earthRead the rest of the interview here Running to the Edge reissued version of his book with his father Dr Jonas Salk UNTIL ONLY RECENTLY the whole of human history has been marked by

download º eBook or Kindle ePUB » Jonas Salk review Ä A New Reality Startling fresh new message of understanding perspective and hope. This is an important and though provoking book It sets out a rationale for the kind of life I have advocated for during the past 45 years cooperative in dynamic sustainable balance with the environment seeking win win solutions through consensus valuing wellbeingI think the concepts of A New Reality need to be understood by the decision makers of our times including politicians and the heads of large corporationsA particularly valuable aspect is that our current world of conflict is explained We need to understand it in order to transform societyAt the same time I find it to be completely unrealistic Like almost all projections from the past to the future it fails to take into account the fact that we are past the tipping point The actions that lead to catastrophe are in our past and we are seeing their conseuences unfold right nowCurrent estimates of extinction rates are 1000 times the background rate If Salk Salk are right and there is a distant future for humanity their archeologists will probably consider us to be the plasticoferous era We live on Poison Planet which is driving a wide range of illnesses and increases death and sufferingI wish I could share the authors hope I read the book wishing they could convince me But certainly while the rulers of humanity are those most to gain from using the rules of the past there will be great difficulty in transitioning to the rules necessary to have a futureHowever I return to the start This is a wonderful book inspirational simple and logical It should be necessary reading for everyone
