An Earth Manifesto Publishing Project

All of the following essays are published on the website Earth Manifesto.  This is an organizational proposal for publishing these treatises in a bound copy in the order indicated below.

My current intention is to have three books published of these writings.  The Earth Manifesto has evolved to include Seven Parts, and these writings are presented on the Home Page very roughly in the reverse order of the order in which they were created.  The writings could be classifiable in a more meaningful way with a completely different order, so I am going to publish them in the following collections to make them more coherent.  This will categorize them very roughly in accordance with the rambling nature of the topics they concern,

The Earth Manifesto is a wide-ranging treasure of ideas and understandings and perspectives, and it has yet to be discovered by anyone, despite being continuously on-line for many years.  This discovery will come sooner rather than later, I reckon, and publication could provide the needed impetus.  It will also serve as a safeguard of sorts for these vitally important ideas.

See the Home Page for descriptions of each of the essays below, and links to their contents.
