This is a very special book. Until now no one has put together the full environmental and ethical story facing Planet Earth, as Tor Hudloe has done. In this book he has put squarely on the agenda the key matters which almost all - including Al Gore - are still dodging for fear of the heavy hand of the church and of conservative economists. And that is to recognise nothing less than the need to reduce our global population; the need to recognise that our market economy does not have to grow forever to retain its vitality; and above all the need to get serious about linking the global economy to.
