Summary
"In the face of today's environmental and economic challenges, doomsayers preach that the only way to stave off disaster is for humans to reverse course: to de-industrialize, re-localize, ban the use of modern energy sources, and forswear prosperity. But in this ... rebuke to the catastrophists, Robert Bryce shows how innovation and the inexorable human desire to make things smaller, faster, lighter, denser, [and] cheaper is providing consumers with cheaper and more abundant energy, faster computing, lighter vehicles, and a myriad of other goods"--
Summary
Argues against the modern movement to de-industrialize, re-localize and reduce both consumption and development in order to preserve the planet and instead advocates for advancing innovations and future technologies to improve the world with smaller, faster solutions
