A common sense yet contrarian manifesto on the environmental issues of our time, from the author of Green Metropolis. Driving hybrids, recycling, and appreciating nature isn't enough. Our best intentions are still at cross purposes to the true goal-living sustainably and caring for our environment and the future of the planet. Can behaviors, lives, and cultures be changed to start truly confronting the environmental issues we can no longer ignore? In this bold manifesto, David Owen reveals startling realities and ways to apply initially counter-intuitive but common sense approaches to change our modern lives-and the future-for the better.
