The world has set in motion environmental trends that are threatening civilization itself. We do not have much time. We are crossing environmental thresholds and violating deadlines set by nature. Nature is the timekeeper, but we cannot see the clock.
With business as usual no longer an option, it is time for Plan B 3.0. Lester Brown, founder of the Earth Policy Institute, investigates the most salient issues from global warming to the impact of unstable governments on our global society. He diagnoses the central ecological problems affecting our planet and offers a response for individuals and governments. Among other concerns, he considers how to raise energy efficiency world-wide and how to harness alternative energy sources on the scale needed. In Plan B 3.0, Brown, who has been analyzing the interaction between global environmental and economic trends for over forty years, provides a map for saving civilization now.
