显示所有 格式和版本 隐藏其他格式和版本
In this urgent time, World on the Edge calls out the pivotal environmental issues and how to solve them now.
We are in a race between political and natural tipping points. Can we close coal-fired power plants fast enough to save the Greenland ice sheet and avoid catastrophic sea level rise? Can we raise water productivity fast enough to halt the depletion of aquifers and avoid water-driven food shortages? Can we cope with peak water and peak oil at the same time? These are some of the issues Lester R. Brown skillfully distills in World on the Edge. Bringing decades of research and analysis into play, he provides the responses needed to reclaim our future.

Ever wonder why?2014年5月29日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
If you really want to know what is going on with our world and all the changes in climate around the world, Mr. Brown is one of the foremost authorities on explaining in simple terms what we have done (and continue to do) to our one and only plant. My niece who is studying to become a Marine Biologist at Massachusetts Maritime Academy turned me on to Mr. Brown and I have read everything he has written. She found him while still in Junior High and is an avid fan. Now I am too. If you question why this past winter was so cold across the plains and New England not to mention in the southern states, you'll find your answers here. If you wonder why parts of the country (and the world) are being hit with droughts that will likely end in more deserts, you will find answers to those questions too. You don't have to be a scientist to understand Mr. Brown's books, just someone who cares about this one world we have.
Very eye-opening, useful book2012年10月10日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I had to buy this book for my ECS111 class, but I really enjoyed reading it so I thought I'd write a review. Few people are aware of the severity of global climate change and how much of an impact we have on it. I will face challenges I could never have comprehended--within my own lifetime. Everyone should read this book. I'm an American, and it's a fact that Americans have the largest per capita negative impact on the world's ecology. So Americans especially should read this book and learn more about how their action impact the world. This book fascinates and opens the eyes of its reader.

Anything written by the great Lester Brown is highly recommended for anyone with the intelligence to listen, comprehend and try to follow through with action. For the rest, save your money. Mr Brown has spent his life trying to make a difference. And for that-alone-he has my highest respect...check out World Watch for further details on he and his efforts/cause/s...Note: world leaders read his reports and books!
