No one is better informed than Lester Brown of the multi-faceted crisis facing our planet. And no one has spelt out so clearly how our civilisation could be saved from falling ‚over the edge‘ while there is—hopefully—still just time. Lester Brown has produced another ‚planetary survey‘ book that tells us how to get off the wrecking train we are on by courtesy of a dozen environmental assaults such as climate change. World on Edge details the vice closing around us: a quadruple squeeze of global warming and shortages in food, water and energy. Then it explains the path out—and how little time we have left to take that path. Got anything more important to read than that?
