Here's the scoop on Lester Brown's Plan B 2.0. Let me know if you find this helpful! And pass it on! And Enjoy!
Perhaps the most important book to read right now... Warning: chapters 2-6 are pretty depressing, but the end of the book is pretty amazing...
All the basic ecological/climate/food/birthcontrol/water/global warming problems could be solved starting right now with current technology and a small percentage of the current world's arms budget. Well documented and extensively footnoted...
Now if we can just figure out how to get over our various psychological, power, addictions, and traumas, so that we could actually implement these solutions (no more technology or science is needed)... And time is running out faster than we know or think...
