Population growth and harmful human lifestyles have pushed Earth's environment to the brink, threatening the future of its inhabitants. These ingrained behaviors will not be changed easily. Author David Louis Sussman spent his career as an international business consultant. He advocates for greater awareness of population issues. Through years of experience, he has seen firsthand the consequences of human behaviors; The Cosmic Cancer offers a prescription for Earth's salvation based on his observations. Human behavior in civilized society is responsible for much of the degradation in Earth's environment. Sussman analyzes fundamental issues that must be addressed: Failure to nurture our youth, even though we know they are the future Emphasis upon rights rather than responsibilities in democracy Sexual repression and its destabilizing consequences Exploitation of mysticism by political and religious operatives The schism between science and philosophy, and the perils of grandstanding environmentalism The human behavioral repertoire has brought about colossal changes in the planet we inherited-changes for the worse rather than the better. This is not merely an American problem; our behaviors are universal. They are a part of the fundamental human condition. However difficult it may be, we must alter our behaviors now, in order to preserve the planet for generations to come. The Cosmic Cancer will show you how. It will not be an easy change, but it is necessary for the survival of humanity and the rest of life on our planet.
