"The Belgian polymath Eric Lambin has penned a compact and readable conspectus of the environmental issues of our time. Historically informed, scientifically sound, and optimistic in tone, this book not only analyzes the central questions but also provides plausible answers, on both policy and personal levels, in a field where there are no easy answers." - J. R. McNeill, author of Something New Under the Sun: An Environmental History of the Twentieth-Century World"
