Summary
Environmental writer Lynas draws on the work of a group of international scientists affiliated with the Stockholm Resilience Center, who have described, in exact numerical terms, which systems of the earth are being most affected by human activities and the limits of these human activities in terms of damage to the earth. The author gives recommendations on how we should manage the planet in nine areas: biodiversity, climate change, nitrogen, land use, freshwater, toxics, aerosols, ocean acidification, and the ozone layer. He looks at social, economic, and political aspects as well as scientific aspects. Surprisingly, the author argues that nuclear power, genetic engineering, and geoengineering are not as harmful for the planet as the continued use of fossil fuels.
