The thesis is an adventure in words and pictures of how major social institutions organized religion, politics, etc. I don't particularly like the title Something needs to be done and let's face it My question is Will it be up to the next? A must read for men and women with a social conscience.

ISBN 13: 9781492197485

The author is brutally honest in his opinions about social institutions that may be uncomfortable for some. He wrote the book from his experiences and is entitled to his opinion. If anything is learned from this book it should be Our world stands a better chance of survival if women express their power with the same mature spirit as Margaret Thatcher, Angela Merkel, Hillary Clinton and others of their ilk. In a world of uncertainties, here is a book that will crystallize your own thoughts about love and relationships between human beings.

The book should be read by all who are concerned about women's rights and gender equality.

Wouldart: Color Edition - AbeBooks - Robert Sterler:

It is a rare, unique, and down-to-earth philosophical study of human love: what it is; where it comes from; where it will lead. The author shows the need for women's equality to obtain the power to change the future for a better society. His forceful declarations of the fundamental characteristics of the sexes from antiquity to the present time are emphasized in the many full-page color drawings illustrating his points. These graphics are reminiscent of the hard-hitting ones that accompanied the social movements of the late sixties and seventies, making Sterler's book an ideal conversation starter as a coffee table book as well as an excellent read.

The book and the author's WouldArt website is a call to action for women's rights and equity, inviting others interested in the movement to become involved. I highly recommend the book. Robert Sterler is a unique way of supporting women, for a man's point of view. Very refreshing to read. It was one of those chance encounters. I was just sitting in a Bad Lands bar on a rainy afternoon having a quiet drink when an old acquaintance happened in and sat down beside me.

He was a retired coal company executive, with a friendly face and a firm grip, and we re-introduced ourselves and visited a good long while. Bad Lands bars on rainy afternoons are good for that, especially for two retired geezers with not much else to do or worry about.

And that got me to thinking, later, about how REALLY different it is from those days when coal severance taxes and mined-land reclamation would have started and dominated a similar discussion. By the time the boom ended in we had built five new power plants and were generating almost 4, megawatts of electricity using lignite coal to boil Missouri River water to turn the turbines which heated and lighted homes, farms and businesses in all of North Dakota and much of South Dakota and Minnesota.

Thousands of blue collar workers populated towns like Bismarck, Beulah, Hazen, and Washburn for a dozen years or so, and then the plants were built, and they moved on, electricians and sheet metal workers and plumbers and carpenters finding work in Fargo, Minneapolis and Denver. There was a dip in the housing market with their departure, but these were also the last days of Jimmy Carter and the first days of Ronald Reagan, when home interest rates reached to 18 per cent, so there was a double whammy in the housing industry. It was only a mini-bust. But the clamor in the s and 80s was over the North Dakota environment—what was the ripping up of the earth and the burning of the coal going to do to our land, our water and our air?

The environment was on our minds back then. The EPA in those days enjoyed almost universal support, because it was going to help save our planet—unlike now, when it is viewed by many as a villain which is killing jobs. My, how our priorities have changed! There was a goodness in this dirt farmer with an eighth grade education who had risen to the highest levels of government, representing his state in the U. S Congress before being elected, and re-elected, as its governor.

He believed we must be conscious about the state we are leaving to future generations. The scale is vastly different, of course. Art Link had to regulate just four coal mines, confined to a pretty small geographic area.

And they only mine a tiny part of that acreage at a time, perhaps a square mile or so a year, reclaiming it as they go. Thanks to Art Link, North Dakota has the best mined-land reclamation laws in the nation. In North Dakota, everything gets put back the way it was before mining started.

Oh, the coal companies muttered and sent their lobbyists to the North Dakota Capitol, saying the government was trying to regulate them out of business, and driving up the price of electricity for customers. Or did.

Until the Bakken Boom. All that matters is money now. There I found, in Chapter 38, the laws that regulate our energy industry. I looked at Chapter The first paragraph says this:. Many surface coal mining operations may result in disturbances of surface areas that adversely affect the public welfare by diminishing the utility of land for commercial, industrial, residential, cultural, educational, scientific, recreational, agricultural, and forestry purposes, by causing erosion, by polluting the water, by destroying fish and wildlife habitats, by impairing natural beauty, by damaging the property of citizens, by creating hazards dangerous to life and property, by degrading the quality of life in local communities, and by counteracting governmental programs and efforts to conserve soil, water, other natural resources, and cultural resources.

Yes, that is actually the wording of a state law, and it is followed by this:. There follows 36 pages of a detailed structure for reclaiming coal-mined land, laws written in the and sessions of the North Dakota Legislature and signed by Art Link. Indeed, the best reclamation laws in the country.

It goes so far as to say that a mining permit can be denied if our experts determine that the land will not be able to be reclaimed after the mining is done. Except this is a law. Then I looked at Section , the laws that regulate the oil industry. It is hereby declared to be in the public interest to foster, to encourage, and to promote the development, production, and utilization of natural resources of oil and gas in the state in such a manner as will prevent waste; to authorize and to provide for the operation and development of oil and gas properties in such a manner that a greater ultimate recovery of oil and gas be had and that the correlative rights of all owners be fully protected; and to encourage and to authorize cycling, recycling, pressure maintenance, and secondary recovery operations in order that the greatest possible economic recovery of oil and gas be obtained within the state to the end that the landowners, the royalty owners, the producers, and the general public realize and enjoy the greatest possible good from these vital natural resources.

My, what a difference. Nowhere in Section The only reference to any kind of reclamation at all that I can find is the posting of a bond so the state can clean up the mess when the oil companies move on. We hate to see you go.

Screw the environment. And the big difference is the land being affected. Coal is mined below what was once, and will be again, cropland. Oh, to be sure, coal has its own problems, creating an air quality crisis many believe is responsible for melting polar ice caps. In spite of everything the coal companies have tried to do right, there will come a day of reckoning for coal.

Solutions to the problems created by coal will be national, global.
