Our Planet: How Much More Can Earth Take?
X

For more than thirty years, scientists from various disciplines have warned that the constant increase in world population and exponential world economic growth are seriously threatening our ecosystems. The vision on which this book is based is of an ongoing, adaptable societal process which leads the world down the path towards sustainability. In this vision, the speed of global environmental changes will be drastically reduced without forgoing the good life; at the same time prosperity will be distributed more fairly.

Jill Jäger Senior researcher at the Sustainable Europe Research Institute (SERI) in Vienna. Co-author of the books Global Change and the Earth System: A Planet Under Pressure (Springer Verlag, 2004) and Learning to Manage Global Environmaental Risks (MIT Press 2001).
