I am interested in the link between three issues. Firstly: Does the human species have an important place in an evolving planet? Secondly: If the answer to this question is yes, how does this relate to the environmental crisis and human-induced global warming? Thirdly, how does all of this relate to the lives of individual humans – their decisions, their actions, and the spiritual dimension of their existence. My view is that the human species has an important place in an evolving planet because its purpose is to geoengineer the temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere. A closely related interest is the question of the degree of similarity that exists between humans and non-human animals, and the degree of similarity that exists between humans and the wider non-human universe.
I have written several books in this area. If you are interested in my work the books I would recommend are:
Is the Human Species Special?: Why human-induced global warming could be in the interests of life
Saviours or Destroyers: The relationship between the human species and the rest of life on Earth
What Does it Mean to be ‘Green’?: Sustainability, Respect & Spirituality
An Evolutionary Perspective on the Relationship between Humans and their Surroundings: Geoengineering, the purpose of life & the nature of the universe
Details of these books can be found at the bottom of my blog.
