Synopsis:

The 21st century will see a transformation in human society. Frankly put, either we reduce our burden on the planet or we may not survive. Change is inevitable, but the choice is ours: a change through enlightened understanding, or a transformation forced upon us by catastrophes beyond our control. This book is about that choice.
