This is the book Donald Trump does NOT want you to read. Global warming, environmental degradation, the World Scientists' Warning to Humanity, ecological collapse. The Robbing Frenzy, well underway by the fossil fuel industry. Exponential change in the environment, which means that when you finally start to see it, it's too late. The timeliness of this book has not changed. In fact, it's more timely than ever...
"Is global ecological collapse approaching? Award winning author Joseph Jenkins has woven a mysterious tapestry of theories, principles, and facts about the Earth and the species Homo sapiens into a thought-provoking, enlightening, and utterly disturbing book. Remarkably timely, this page-turner is a must-read for all those who are concerned about human consciousness and our collective future."
Dire predictions and alarming warnings by the world's scientists indicate our planet is out of balance and a planetary ecological collapse is impending. Most Americans, however, don't seem to understand the urgency of our precarious situation here on Earth. Why the widespread lack of concern as our planetary life support systems disintegrate around us?
Until her sudden and inexplicable death in 1999, Dr. Lucille Boggs, a maverick scientist at a large western university, had been uncovering surprising answers as to why people are so indifferent to environmental degradation. Balance Point tells the story of her research through the eyes of her nephew, who receives her Last Will and Testament and, with it, becomes her final hope. Lured by the promise of a rich inheritance, Joseph Jenkins reluctantly assumes responsibility for finishing Dr. Boggs' work, inadvertently plunging himself and his family into the midst of a puzzle of global proportions.
Balance Point takes the reader on a page-turning adventure from the author's comfortable Pennsylvania home to the farthest reaches of civilization in a search to solve Lucy's puzzle. On their quest to locate the missing links to her mystery, though, they discover that some answers lie closer to home, and that sometimes, the only way to find them is to look inside oneself.
A timely book with cutting-edge relevance, Balance Point's message is one that will be carried with you long after the last page has been turned. Although highly recommended for anyone concerned about the state of the planet, it also makes a great gift for the environmentally complacent.

Look Inside the Book
The Book Reader: "Jenkins tackles the vital subject of our looming ecological disaster, and takes us on an entertaining trek throughout the world. A delightful new slant on our environmental mess in a wonderful tale told with passion, wit and insight."
Today's Librarian; August 2000: "An engaging and enlightening book - as well as a disturbing warning to us all."
Arkansas Environmental Education Association Newsletter: "AN INCREDIBLE ENVIRONMENTAL JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY - Every now and then a book comes along that really speaks to your heart. 'Balance Point: Searching for a Spiritual Missing Link' by Joseph Jenkins was such a book for me. It is perhaps the best environmental book I have ever read and I would like to encourage everyone to experience this book."
"I have finished reading Balance Point. I enjoyed and appreciated the contents. I must admit I first scoffed at Balance Point because it more or less felt like one more "self-help"-spiritual book on the Barnes and Noble shelf, but I was wrong, and I appreciate being wrong in this case. I believe that there are events, objects, and people that will pen information into our life story and provide us subtle awakenings/alterations in our life.Your work has provided that to me."
