About this book

Humans are overexploiting nature, consuming too much energy, too many raw materials, too much land. In short, the current economic and lifestyle patterns of mankind, especially here in the West, are not sustainable.

Who would disagree with this verdict? The evidence seems overwhelming: species extinction, rainforest deforestation, scarcity of raw materials, soil erosion, plastic waste, ecological footprint and, of course, climate change. But how reliable are these indicators? Are there perhaps also other indications, positive developments? And are all these problems of the same urgency?

This book gives you answers: well-founded, comprehensible, to the point. It proves that the reports and headlines on ecological issues in the mainstream media are often one-sided, exaggerated and thus misleading. The book does not trivialize, but it differentiates. Using the relevant international reports and databases, it presents overall contexts where otherwise usually only individual, striking figures are picked out.

With over 70 graphic illustrations, the book thus paints a new picture of the state of the planet and of the effects of human economic activity and consumption. At the end is a clear list of priorities for the real sustainability challenges – for humanity as a whole, and also for the West.

This book is a translation of an original German edition. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence (machine translation by the service DeepL). A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content, so that the book will read stylistically differently from a conventional translation.
