Save the World and Get Laid

That could pretty much be the motto to sum up Danish philosopher Tor Nørretranders. I've read his earlier book, Civilization 2.0, and I was lucky enough to catch a speech he held at the Danish Climate Movement's first meeting. He's quite funny, and he's a great rhetorician.

Most of his points about mankind allude to the fact that we are the greatest survivors in history, everything of what we do is for survival and procreation, and that we will do anything to get laid, be that buying an iPod, going to the gym or saving the planet.

Some of his books are translated into English, do check them out! This is his latest, The Green Light - for a different world.
