The Post Carbon Reader

December 9, 2010 • Climate Change & Mitigation, Daily Email Recap

If you are looking for the perfect holiday gift, I am happy to announce that The Post Carbon Reader is now available in bookstores. My contribution, the essay Population: The Multiplier of Everything Else, gives a broad overview of the population issue. You can pick up your copy here:

How do population, water, energy, food, and climate issues impact one another? How do we respond to one problem without making the others worse? The Post Carbon Reader addresses the key issues shaping our new century, from overpopulation and renewable energy to social justice and community resilience. The Post Carbon Reader takes a hard-nosed look at these interconnected threats and, critically, presents some of the most promising responses.

Contributors include some of the world’s leading sustainability thinkers, including Bill McKibben, Richard Heinberg, Stephanie Mills, David Orr, Wes Jackson, Erika Allen, Gloria Flora, and dozens more.
