Big World, Small Planet
Abundance within Planetary Boundaries
By Johan Rockström and Mattias Klum; With Peter Miller
In this extraordinary book, the authors combine the latest science with compelling storytelling and amazing photography to create a positive new narrative for humanity’s future. They explain how economic growth can be achieved without destabilizing Earth’s natural systems and why planetary stewardship is the essential key.
“Our future hangs in the balance. We are inflicting grave damage on Planet Earth, and if we carry on with ‘business as usual’ we may reach the point of no return—when ecosystems collapse and more and more species become extinct. There is hope if only we can bridge the gap between the clever human brain and the compassionate human heart and act now. Johan Rockström and Mattias Klum lead the way with scientific clarity, powerful storytelling, and inspiring and award-winning photography.”
—Dr. Jane Goodall
