About this book

This original and controversial book argues that what is now preventing us from taking the next step to combating climate change is the sustainable development framework itself.

The book outlines an alternative sustainability model and explores how it might work in key areas - energy usage, governance, education and the role of enterprise.

This is bold new thinking that offers a genuinely hopeful practical strategy in place of the mirage.
