Arguing that responsible action by individual citizens will not be enough to significantly improve the environment, this persuasive discourse suggests that governments must take decisive action to avert catastrophe. With insight from an experienced environmental scientist who has taught, researched, and worked in environmental policy for more than a quarter century, this thoughtful and forward-looking book demands that nations make positive environmental decisions in the interests of their current and future constituents rather than short-term, patchwork solutions, which are too often subject to the whims of corporations and large political donors.
