Noted urban development expert and author David Morris presents an enlightening comparison between eco-crisis or sustainability as a global future. He addresses some of the most critical issues facing this country and the world today–deterioration of the planetary atmosphere and the greenhouse effect, the debt of the Third World, energy, garbage/recycling, plant-based fuels and plastics, and the underlying economics of each of these problems. Morris is exceptional because he goes beyond the problems and discusses solutions leading to local self-reliance and a sustainable future.
