Dr Saamdu Chetri is one of the people that has endorsed my book The Silent Ecocide-the environmental crisis is a crisis of human consciousness.
Dr Chetri is the Executive Director of Bhutan’s Gross National Happiness Center and a pioneer of Sustainability, making Bhutan one of the first countries in the world to move completely towards Organic Farming. Located between two of the world’s largest economies lies the tiny Kingdom of Bhutan, land of the thunder dragon.
Democracy and modernization are new here, and as Bhutan opens up to the world, it is defining its own development path, one that values its culture, Nature, and Happiness
“The book “The Silent Ecocide” captures incredibly the truth about human greed, which has made us exceed the planetary boundaries. The data in the book plus two decades of the writers experience in ecology is a revelation for the ultimate awakening of human consciousness. The wonders of nature are traded by the corrupt forces of market…mainly the investors….who have no right to it.
Human beings who have the smallest place in coexistence have pretended for too long to be above all. This ego has separated humanity from all forms of lives. Transformation of human consciousness becomes urgent for the survival of all forms of life and for intergenerational equity………
Thank you and all the best for this wonderful book of yours. May human beings soon realize their follies before it is too late.”
