"How to build a more just world and save the planet....We should all heed Brown's advice."—Bill Clinton
In this updated edition of the landmark Plan B, Lester Brown outlines a survival strategy for our early twenty-first-century civilization. The world faces many environmental trends of disruption and decline, including rising temperatures and spreading water shortage. In addition to these looming threats, we face the peaking of oil, annual population growth of 70 million, a widening global economic divide, and a growing list of failing states. The scale and complexity of issues facing our fast-forward world have no precedent
With Plan A, business as usual, we have neglected these issues overly long. In Plan B 3.0, Lester R. Brown warns that the only effective response now is a World War II-type mobilization like that in the United States after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Great source of knowledge on the subject
Honestly if everyone had a chance to read this book then I really think the debate over the environment would be over. Because really when it comes down to it, as Brown suggests, it doesn't matter if you call it Global Warming, climate change, whatever. What you can't call it is just BS. This is not a political issue but it is the most serious issue facing us today. This is a problem that involves the entire world and Brown does a magnificent job of laying out exactly what we're looking at and how we might be able to take some steps towards solving it.
