Summary

Explains the effects of human activity on our planet and how it could change our world irreversibly for future generations.

Our planet is under immense stress. Population growth and the destruction of ecosystems are creating problems never seen before in Earth's history. Our climate is changing, sea levels are rising, and our world is becoming increasingly polluted.

Using the latest scientific evidence and simple graphics, leading environmentalist Tony Juniper reveals both the challenges we face and the solutions that can help reverse the trends and create a better world for our children.
