ABOUT Tony Kearney

Tony Kearney
I was born in New Zealand where I grew up and studied at University.  Having qualified as a lawyer I then embarked on travels around the world before settling in London where I practised as a lawyer for nearly 25 years, specialising in construction, employment and human rights law.     More...


With the world being inundated with facts and statistics about everything from global warming and climate change to GM food to energy and resource crises to poverty and alienation it is easy to be swamped and overcome by the seeming uncertainty and apparent impossibility of it all. 


This book merges themes of environmentalism, philosophy, science, psychology, language, sociology, metaphysics, religion, gender relationships, politics, poverty, population and much more towards finding frameworks about how the human race can address the awesome challenges facing it both now and into the future.


The book pulls no punches about the peril of our current situation, but essentially offers an optimistic and realistic view of the future based on the premise that the human race can successfully change and adapt its behaviour in order to survive and flourish.

The question is however, will it make those changes?  And, will you?

Ghandi once said "Be the change you want to see in the world." Well writing this book is part of my attempt to do just that.

Thought provoking, original and thoroughly well researched. This book takes a fresh, probing and sometimes uncomfortable look at our current situation as a human race and seeks to question what we think about it rather than provide cliched answers. Every chapter, in fact, ends with a question - some big, some small and most profound. From global warming to politics, from gender relationships to religion, the reader is taken on a journey through the human condition. Despite some often shocking facts and statistics, the book leaves the reader with a real sense of hope, and certainly a great bunch of questions. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to look beneath the surface and behind the obvious.
