Product Description


This book brings together two emerging themes in sustainability science: the notion that there may be a 'safe operating space for humanity' and the idea that sustainability issues are inter-related with one another. For instance bio-energy production has potential impacts on food prices and biodiversity. An eminent group of researchers asks: what are the limits on mineral water and energy use at different scales and how are these limits linked to each other? They argue that creating a pathway to sustainability in the use of resources requires attention to linkages between their stocks and flows and how people are influencing these. This book is a novel and comprehensive survey of global sustainability issues which I highly recommend.
