How serious are the threats to our environment? Here is one measure of the problem: if we continue to do exactly what we are doing, with no growth in the human population or the world economy, the world in the latter part of this century will be unfit to live in. Of course human activities are not holding at current levels - they are accelerating, dramatically - and so, too, is the pace of climate disruption, biotic impoverishment, and toxification.

In this book, Gus Speth, author of Red Sky at Morning and a widely respected environmentalist, begins with the observation that the environmental community has grown in strength and sophistication, but the environment has continued to decline, to the point that we are now at the edge of catastrophe.

    " This was the second book we read for Montserrat. It was a little harder to get through than the first book we read because it was heavy with economic facts and stuff, but it was still interesting, and it made for good discussions in class this week. "

    " Interesting insight into the current state of affairs in the U.S. with particular focus on the nexus between environmental issues and the other problems we face. Taking a class from the author last semester also helped make it a fun read! "
