My Treadlift Workout Review

Highly Recommended

I usually find books written on this category hard to understand and full of jargon. But the author was capable of presenting advanced techniques in an extremely easy to understand language.

This ebook served its purpose to the maximum level. I am glad that I purchased it. If you are interested in this field, this is a must have.

Ecocide And The Global Treadmill Of Production

The concept of the global treadmill of production is a term coined by Galbraith to demonstrate how our late modern materialist and consumer-oriented society operates.43 The global treadmill system, largely responsible for the accelerated pace of ecocide, constitutes a kind of giant squirrel cage. 44 Everyone is part of this gigantic treadmill and is unable or unwilling to get off. Investors and managers are driven by the need to accumulate wealth and to expand the scale of their operations in order to prosper within a globally competitive milieu. For the vast majority of the world's people, the commitment to the treadmill is more limited and indirect they simply need to obtain jobs at livable wages. But to retain these jobs and to maintain an acceptable standard of living it is necessary, like the Red Queen in Through the Looking Glass, to run faster and faster in order to stay in the same place.45 An increasingly large proportion of people within this global treadmill system -...

Living In The Age Of Ecocide

Modern world resembles a kind of suspended treadmill on which people busy themselves with everything except with those things that are destroying them. Repression and denial do not just take the psychological form of evading an authentic inner life. As I noted in previous chapters, the widespread denial of the scale of global environmental problems has deeper social institutional and ideological roots.

The Human Dimension of Agricultural Sustainability

It is clear that rural sustainability is being undermined by agriculture, particularly as agriculture is the dominant user of rural land. However, in discussing sustainable agriculture, the ecological dimension has tended to be privileged while the social dimension has been neglected. The current economic and ecological crisis for agriculture has, therefore, opened up the space for a discussion of what sustainable agriculture might be, and how it might be operationalized. Social sustainability in much of rural areas is still to be sought through productivity agriculture. Thus, there continues to be a trade-off between ecological priority areas and the productivity pressures of the agricultural treadmill (Ogaji 2005).

The Failure Of Environmental Education

Most modern institutions of formal education and schooling are an integral part of the global treadmill of production.54 The educational analogy to the global treadmill of production is the degree-mill of ideological reproduction. Modern schooling has played an instrumental part in ideologically reproducing the progressively ecocidal global predicament. After all, as social critic and linguist Noam Chomsky notes But even school-based environmental education requires further improvement. Allan Schnaiberg, one of the leading US environmental sociologists, was one of the first academics to raise concerns about the poor state of environmental education in the institutions of higher learning in the United States and elsewhere.57 Schnaiberg argues that few of our undergraduates really are exposed to much systematic thinking about environmental issues in their experiences. What passes for environmental education, in Schnaiberg's words, is deeply flawed at every level of the educational...

The Interaction Of Human Engineers With Ecological Engineers The Case Of Pesticides

A classic example of how Carson's principles worked themselves out, and how humans and pests can ultimately engineer an environment so hostile that certain species are effectively eliminated, is the case of cotton in Nicaragua (Falcon 1971). The beginnings of the story are in the same post-WWII climate referred to earlier. Landowners in Nicaragua saw cotton, the crop with an effectively undisruptable world demand, as a great potential due to the basic environmental conditions on Nicaragua's Pacific seaboard. The only problem was the cotton boll weevil, long known as a devastating pest in all of the Americas. But with the enthusiasm of the new focus on pesticides, boll weevils were simply another enemy to be vanquished and DDT was the armament that would do the job. Cotton was widely planted and DDT was sprayed a couple of times during the cotton growth cycle. The boll weevils died and the planters got rich. Yet only 5 years after its introduction DDT began losing its effectiveness....

Challenge of Sustainable Agriculture

Monoculture of high yielding varieties has made crops more vulnerable, in the long run, to the resilience of endemic pests and diseases, which adapted to the expanded and homogenized host environment. This leads to an increase in pest infestations and increased use of pesticides in an escalating treadmill of action and reaction, and higher production costs and damage to the environment.1 The third means of increasing food production tackles this problem of reducing crop losses. It proposes to secure and increase agricultural productivity through means which break or circumvent the pesticide treadmill pattern and which restore a sustainable balance of organisms in the ecosystem. It has been suggested that by adopting integrated pest management approaches, including post-harvest management, global food availability could be doubled. Techniques include the judicious and reduced use of pesticides, multicropping to avoid monoculture and the introduction of pest-resistant cultivars.1

Natural Systems Agriculture

An additional unintended consequence of widespread and constant pesticide application is evolution of pesticide resistance in target organisms. The result is a need for higher application rates of some pesticides as well as continuous research to develop new substances to control the targeted pests. This phenomenon has been termed the pesticide treadmill we work harder and harder to stay in the same place but with ever-increasing costs to environmental quality.

The new paradigm first should be adopted by the scientific community, and then extended to the whole society. Allan Schnaiberg proposed, in his book The Environment From Surplus to Scarcity (1980), the notion of the treadmill of production. It denotes the self-reproducing nature of modern capitalism, promoting economic growth and private capital accumulation. Corporations are forced to expand their activity to survive in a very competitive market, and administrations favor growth to gain increasing tax revenues. The escalating process of accumulation leads to an intensification of the demand of inputs, in the form of natural resources, and the production of outputs, as pollution. Frederick Buttel indicates there are two key environmental phenomena that need attention. First, human consumption of goods and services, driving production, with little awareness of the environmental implications, a phenomenon that he designates with the term substructural environmental practice. The second...

The Ideological Turn

The tendency to conceptualize environmental problems in ideological terms is one of the symptomatic responses to the problems engendered by the progressively speciescidal global treadmill of production. By ideology I understand a system of widely shared beliefs and values that simplify and distort social reality in order to protect specific power interests. Thus, dominant ideological processes produce political and cognitive distortions of the species-survival situation. Corporate media reporting on environmental affairs typically focus on the horrific extent of a given environmental calamity, but usually they ignore causality by emphasizing the immediate rather than underlying causes. This often finds expression in the journalistic predilection for using passive language wherever possible, leaving the audience ill-equipped to imagine themselves as active agents combating an environmental crisis. Statements such as we are faced with the loss of large numbers of species by the end of...
