Another book I absolutely have to mention, it honestly changed me. I found it once in London in the library next to my school completely by accident, took it home and read it twice. "What will it take?: A deeper approach to nature conservation". It's just a basic book about the current environmental crisis, failures and successes in the past, what needs to be done, etc. But it opened my eyes. It starts off with the lyrics of Big Yellow Taxi and then goes into stories about mercury and DDT poisoning, poaching, oil spills, all these horror stories. It's a bit sad actually because going through it now, it's a little bit of a fundamentalist book and there's some bits of it that annoy me a bit just for being so biased...that said, it was a great starting point :) And it's where I first read one of the most valuable quotes, "Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web he does to himself."
Upcoming news. Not much of it really. Unless I have more childhood flashbacks that actually have little to do with my blog then I technically shouldn't be posting much for a while again :P Good news, season 4 of Whale Wars will start broadcasting around the time I get to India so I get to be up to date :)
