More About Big World, Small Planet by Johan Rockstrom; Mattias Klum; Peter Miller
 
 
 
Overview
A profoundly original vision of an attainable future that ensures human prosperity by safeguarding our threatened planet

"If you have time to read one book on this subject, I highly recommend the new Big World, Small Planet, by Johan Rockstrom, director of the Stockholm Resilience Center, and Mattias Klum, whose stunning photographs of ecosystem disruptions reinforce the urgency of the moment."--Thomas L. Friedman, New York Times

Big World, Small Planet probes the urgent predicament of our times: how is it possible to create a positive future for both humanity and Earth? We have entered the Anthropocene--the era of massive human impacts on the planet--and the actions of over seven billion residents threaten to destabilize Earth's natural systems, with cascading consequences for human societies. In this extraordinary book, the authors combine the latest science with compelling storytelling and amazing photography to create a new narrative for humanity's future. Johan Rockstrom and Mattias Klum reject the notion that economic growth and human prosperity can only be achieved at the expense of the environment. They contend that we have unprecedented opportunities to navigate a "good Anthropocene." By embracing a deep mind-shift, humanity can reconnect to Earth, discover universal values, and take on the essential role of planetary steward. With eloquence and profound optimism, Rockstrom and Klum envision a future of abundance within planetary boundaries--a revolutionary future that is at once necessary, possible, and sustainable for coming generations.
