Missing Something

Missing something — Hope for consumers in a warm, crowded world

Every hour of every day 8,000 more human beings join the global community. As our numbers and standard of living rise we squeeze ever more resources from nature. Never before has one species been so successful and so effective in changing the world.

Rather than celebrate, so often we are made to feel guilty. We are told that we stand on the environmental cliff about to fall onto the rocks of global warming, pollution and starvation.

Then the counter message is no, of course we can cope, because with our skills and ingenuity coupled to the ever-powerful engine of commerce all will be well, better even.

Who should we believe? Should we be worried or is it okay to carry on doing our thing?

This book is a view of our vexation and love affair with the environment from the disparate trenches of academia, business and a long practical experience of the environment.

It is a light and sometimes amusing journey through the complexities of a world shaped by a voracious, resource hungry species. It will help you think and join the dots.

Best of all it gives you a ray of hope.
