In The World We Have noted Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh offers a dramatic vision of the future of a planet overheated by rapidly disappearing fossil fuels, degraded by massive overconsumption, and besieged by unsupportable population growth.

Nhat Hanh finds answers to these critical problems in the Buddhist teaching of the impermanence of all things. He demonstrates how this teaching can offer inner peace and help us use our collective wisdom and technology to restore the Earth’s balance.

Mixing inspiring insights with practical strategies, Hanh cites projects his own monastic community has undertaken that can serve as models for any community. Both his ” No Car Day,” observed once a week, and the “Earth Peace Treaty Commitment Sheet” can impact our ecological footprint on the Earth.

Above all, he shows how acceptance of problems is that first critical step toward a deeper understanding of the best way to care for our Earth.

Includes Thich Nhat Hanh’s speech at UNESCO from October 2006 introducing his proposal for a global “No Car Day.”

Foreword by Alan Weisman.
