Product Description

Review

'This is a bold, thought-provoking and ultimately rewarding book, well-researched, full of ideas - and thus a good, all-round primer on the state of the planet' BBC Wildlife 'An impressive tour of our current world: from sexual slavery to sailing ships, from malaria to microcredits, from nanotechnology to neopaganism, all the horrors and promises of our troubled Zeitgeist seem to be reflected here' Resurgence 'Is this a book you can afford to ignore? ... only the foolhardy would surely dare leave it unread on the shelf' International Affairs 'Mason, a former Australian senator, writes a narrative that is that is carefully researched and sober, and he actually offers some suggestions as to what to do about it' Steve Poole, Guardian 'Here you have a well-informed and realistic analysis and a blueprint for action.' Network Review, The Scientific and Medical Network

Amazon.com: 4.0 out of 5 stars 1 review
4.0 out of 5 stars Looking at what is ahead is frightening!! 20 Jun. 2012
By Moya L Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Much admire Colin's views about the future - even if the situation is quite frightening. Colin's book is easy to read - put up and put down and his views relating to climate change are very acceptable and clearly stated. To break upcoming problems down into clearly defined areas of concern such as Energy, Population and Poverty, Climate Change, Food, Health and Water (to name a few) makes for better understanding of what the World is facing and he offers some personal thoughts/solutions for these. A very educating and thought provoking book.
