Big World, Small PlanetBig World, Small Planet: Abundance Within Planetary BoundriesMattias Klum, Johan Rockström
It is time to turn the page. We have entered the Anthropocene —the era of massive human impacts on Earth—which redefines our future. Our way of life is threatening to trigger catastrophic tipping points that could knock the planet out of its stable state.
In this book science, photography, and storytelling are brought together to share the latest insights on the necessity, possibility, and opportunities presented by a new development paradigm —abundance within planetary boundaries. Safeguarding the remaining beauty on Earth, and using global sustainability to unleash innovation and build resilience, are at the heart of this new narrative of world growth within Earth’s limits.
“The authors demonstrate that with collective action, humankind can still bend the curves of negative environmental change toward a resilient and prosperous future—but there’s no time left to waste.” – Bill Clinton
