Missing Something

Missing Something — hope for consumers in a warm, crowded world by Dr J. Mark Dangerfield 

Every hour of every day 8,000 more human beings join the global community. As our numbers and standard of living rise we need ever more resources from nature.  Never before has one species been so successful and so effective in changing the world. Rather than celebrate we are told that we are on the edge of an 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 will help you decide. It is a light and sometime amusing view of our vexatious love affair with the environment seen from disparate trenches of academia, business and a long practical experience of the environment.
