The Canary in the Coal Mine / De kanarie in de Kolenmijn

My latest ebook, it’s a warning by Marianne Thieme and Ewald Engelen against the unsustainability of the current political and financial choices.

Synopsis

Ewald Engelen and Marianne Thieme warn against the unsustainability of today’s politics and financial choices. Like a canary in a coal mine, they identify the dangers that jeopardise our future. Such as the fossil perspective, which has led to the near-complete depletion of the collected reserves of fossil fuels. Or the fact that famine is not the result of insufficient food production, but predominantly due to food distribution and waste issues. And that conflicts over water are not a thing of the distant future, but are already manifest in the present. The majority of politicians and scientists opt for marginal changes within the status quo, focused on more economic growth and increased free trade. Ewald Engelen and Marianne Thieme advocate a radical change of direction. Engelen from an economic perspective, Thieme from an ecological standpoint. They reach a common conclusion: the financial system and the political structure are rotten to the core. Plan B is unavoidable. Ewald Engelen (1963) is professor of financial geography at the University of Amsterdam, where he studies the global financial system. As a publicist and activist, he is well-known for his criticism of the euro and TTIP, the trade agreement between the United States and the European Union. Marianne Thieme (1972) is group leader for the Party for the Animals (Partij voor de Dieren) in the House of Representatives in the Netherlands, lawyer, animal rights and environmental activist and publicist. In 2002 she was one of the co-founders of Party for the Animals (Partij voor de Dieren).

Spanish Learning Bundle: Learn Spanish Guide + Spanish Vocabulary

As you can read in my profile, I’m learning Spanish. But at the moment I’m not making much progress, so I bought this bundle at Amazon. Hoping it will help me make more and faster progress.

Of course it’s in the Kindle format with DRM, but with Calibre I’ve made it DRMfree and converted it to Epub, so I can use it also on my ereader.


ErichVonDanikenChariotsOfTheGodsChariots of the Gods – Erich von Däniken

Chariots of the Gods is a book authored in 1968 by Erich von Däniken. It involves the hypothesis that the technologies and religions of many ancient civilizations were given to them by ancient astronauts who were welcomed as gods.

Read the book when I was young(er), finally I bought me a copy, of course in digital format 😉
