Summary
In this timely work, Alan Weisman examines how we can shrink our collective human footprint so that we don't stomp any more species -- including our own -- out of existence. The answer: reducing gradually and non-violently the number of humans on the planet whose activities, industries and lifestyles are damaging the Earth
Summary
The author visits twenty countries around the world to get their take on the sustainability of human life on the planet, discussing optimum population and how to prosper without endless growth
