The Age of Sustainable Development

Dr. Jeffrey D. Sachs is famous professor of economics at Columbia University with many credentials, including adviser at the United Nations. Sachs emphasizes the relationship between the three legs of sustainability: economy, ecology, and society. Forget your politics for the moment; Sachs will give you the whole picture hoping people make smart decisions, well balanced decisions, thought based rather than emotion based.

Population, carbon, economic growth, and warming all are inter-related in complex and sometimes surprising ways. Sachs shows how we all might be able e to make a positive difference.

Well written, graceful, excellent research, clear charts and graphs -- and an absolute pleasure.
