Description

The world's leading environmentalist delivers an urgent assessment of the planet's state and offers science-based solutions.

Whether he's discussing how to reconcile economy with ecology, why a warmer world will result in more poison ivy, why Britney Spears gets more hits on Google than global warming does, or why we might need to start eating jellyfish for supper, David Suzuki points the direction we must take as a society if we hope to meet the environmental challenges we face in our still-young century. In this important and often provocative book Suzuki and Dave Robert Taylor look beyond our environmental problems to examine the forces that are preventing real change.
The Big Picture puts key issues which face us today under the microscope. Covering suburban sprawl, sustainable transportation, food shortages, biodiversity, technology, public policy, and more, The Big Picture not only identifies the problems we face but proposes solid, science-based solutions. These engaging essays tell the story of a species struggling to come to grips with its own biological nature, a nature we must ultimately embrace to live in balance with the systems that sustain us.
