World on the Edge




By Lester Brown.


In this urgent time, calls out the pivotal environmental issues and how to solve them now.

We are in a race between political and natural tipping points. Can we close coal-fired power plants fast enough to save the Greenland ice sheet and avoid catastrophic sea level rise? Can we raise water productivity fast enough to halt the depletion of aquifers and avoid water-driven food shortages? Can we cope with peak water and peak oil at the same time? These are some of the issues Lester R. Brown skilfully distils in . Bringing decades of research and analysis into play, he provides the responses needed to reclaim our future.


"Lester Brown has produced another 'planetary survey' book that tells us how to get off the wrecking train we are on by courtesy of a dozen environmental assaults such as climate change. The better news (and there's plenty) is that turning problems into opportunities generally puts money into our pockets."—Norman Myers, 21st Century School, University of Oxford.

" is brilliant. Author Lester Brown is one of humanity's greatest voices for the environment. In this volume, he presents the reader with a clear prescription for restoring sanity to our relationship with the biosphere. Highest recommendation."—Geoffrey Holland, author of .


Lester R. Brown is president of the Earth Policy Institute, a research organization in Washington, DC. He has been honoured with numerous prizes, including a MacArthur Fellowship, United Nations Environment Prize, and Japan's Blue Planet Prize.
