* Reassuringly presents a prioritized action plan to avoid the coming crisis and build a bright future
The 2030 decade will see six "drivers" converge with unprecedented force in a statistical "spike" on the graph paper of life. Depleted fuel supplies, rampant population growth, poverty, climate change, famine and water shortages are all on a crash course that could plunge the world into a global dark age.
Mason cuts through the rhetoric, reams of often conflicting information and doom saying to illustrate a broad picture of the world as it is and the courses of action that we need to take now to avoid catastrophe. With over 100 priorities for immediate action to prevent crisis in the future, this book presents a way forward to a bright and prosperous future for all people.
