Earth Federation Now: Tomorrow Is Too Late examines our planet's increasing political and ecological problems and offers cogent arguments for a wholesome global approach to these problems. National governments, by the very fact of their definition as "national," have neither power nor jurisdiction to appropriately address imminent ecological disasters and other challenges to the protection of human life on a planetary scale. Neither can concerted solutions for Earth be found through international conventions, because observance of their terms cannot be enforced upon ostensibly sovereign states. Though military action has historically been cited as a recourse, we see now that militarism is itself a primary cause of the Earth's current predicament. Harris argues that the establishment of a civil Earth Federation, democratically operated and empowered to enforce World Law, is the one practicable approach.
