About this book

Noted geogrpaher Eric Lambin provides a concise, redable summary of the present state of the environment and considers what must be done if environmental catastrophe is to be avoided. Finding merit in the arguments of both optimists and pesimists, Lambin argues that it is not too late to exploit the inherent tendency toward equilibrium of large-scale systems such as the Earth's environment. By relying upon a combination of remedies as global as international cap-and-trade emission treaties and as local as municipal programs promoting the use of bicycles rather than cars, we may yet be able to rescue humanity from a fatal crisis of our own making.

Based on rigorous scientific analysis and strikingly free of ideological prejudice, this book presents a fresh view of our troubled future, brilliantly balancing tough-minded realism with humanitarian ideals of cooperation and ingenuity.

Media reviews
The Belgian polymath Eric Lambin has penned a compact and readable conspectus of the environmental issues of our time. Historically informed, scientifically sound, and optimistic in tone, this book not only analyzes the central questions but also provides plausible answers, on both policy and personal levels, in a field where there are no easy answers. - J. R. McNeill, author of Something New Under the Sun: An Environmental History of the Twentieth-Century World"
