"This is a sobering and scary (and fascinating) book--a look at where we're going if we don't quickly get our act together. And it's replete with clues about how we could indeed make the changes that would make this fiction, not prophecy." --Bill McKibben, New York Times bestselling author of Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?
