If extinctions are part of nature’s course, then why does it matter that so many species are becoming extinct now? Over the long course of man’s occupance on Earth has been seemingly characterised by its dependence on nature and the ecology which has overtime greatly influenced homeostatic regulation – i.e. balance of nature, where clearly, nature's capacity to support man’s existence has plummeted with the release of obnoxious chemicals into the environment. It is pertinent to note that all species, while evolving and adapting to the demands of their habitats or modernization exigencies, changes dramatically, subjecting the ecologies, which happen to be the fabric of life to the dynamic swirl of physical forces and of rapid decline of species diversity. If we continue to lose large and vital portions of the natural world to extinction of species and other criticalities, we humans would be able to cope, but plants and animals may not be able to adapt to most of these changes, and as a result may die and become extinct, resulting in a break in food chain. A considerable attempt has been made through this book to explicitly cover these emerging concerns or topics, in a consolidated form which will provide effective understanding of environmental problems currently being faced in different world regions and perhaps not just to give the reader a fair knowledge about the huge role the ecology has in the survival of species and existence of man, but to provide the extent to which the state of dynamic equilibrium from nature will deprive the generations yet unborn the right to clean and healthy environment and harmony with nature.

Rising seas are endangering the habitability and very existence of several small island nations, mostly in the Pacific and Indian oceans. This is the first book to focus on the myriad legal issues posed by this tragic situation: if a nation is under water, is it still a state? Does it still have a seat at the United Nations? What becomes of its exclusive economic zone, the basis for its fishing rights? What obligations do other nations have to take in the displaced populations, and what are these peoples' rights and legal status once they arrive? Should there be a new international agreement on climate-displaced populations? Do these nations and their citizens have any legal recourse for compensation? Are there any courts that will hear their claims, and based on what theories? Leading legal scholars from around the world address these novel questions and propose answers.
And then the isolated humans are threatened by — something, something large and dangerous, where there are no intelligent ... The movement of the plot of 'VEMS' identifies the threat as the planet's forest, one vast semi-sentient.

Everyone, regardless of nationality, religion, or political beliefs, has a sense of the current crisis of planet Earth. The environmental movement has support around the globe, while politicians — lagging behind reality — are still fighting over whether global warming exists. Decision-makers in government and in the private sector are dealing with the symptoms of this crisis, rather than addressing the underlying causes in a positive and constructive way. Osho points out that the current world crisis is a crisis of consciousness. Until there is a radical change in human consciousness, the interrelated social, political, economic, and ecological crises we face will continue. Osho's radical vision of change addresses how we can turn the present crisis into an opportunity, and what we must do in order to steer our course toward a "golden future" for all humankind and away from what he calls a "global suicide." Topics addressed in the book include the crisis of human values, the ecological crisis, the population challenge, the end of nations and religions, creative science, education, and human rights.
