Summary

The sustainability problems now facing humanity pose the most serious danger to mankind since the human race began. Not only is our current situation fraught with unprecedented threats to the human future. These are also problems of the utmost urgency, and they demand concerted global action at all levels within the next ten to fifteen years. The time available to implement solutions is running out at an alarming rate. Humanity is racing towards the abyss of environmental devastation with such a blinkered vision that the impending peril is scarcely perceived by the vast bulk of the global population.
