Missing Something

Hope for consumers in a warm, crowded world

MissingSomethoing3DcoverSEvery hour of every day 8,000 more human beings join the global community. As our numbers and standard of living rise we squeeze ever more resources from nature. Never before has one species been so successful and so effective in changing the world.

Rather than celebrate, so often we are made to feel guilty. We are told that we stand on the environmental cliff about to fall onto the rocks of global warming, pollution and starvation below.

Will we plunge or not? Missing something is a book that helps you decide. It is a light and sometimes amusing view of our vexatious love affair with the environment seen from the disparate trenches of academia, business and a long practical experience of the environment.
