The twenty-first century has been dominated by two major global crises: a scarcity of food and fuel. Both have had detrimental effects on the environment and both are at the root of the fragile health of the global economy.

Combining the best of the critically acclaimed Fuelling the Future and Feeding the Future, this timely and provocative collection of essays from leading thinkers such as Thomas Homer-Dixon, Gordon Laird, Jeremy Rifkin, Frances Moore Lappe, and Anna Lappe offers valuable strategies to combat global famine and fast-food fat; business models for sustainable food production and power sources; and descriptions of emerging technologies and sciences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Look Further This is an absolutely excellent resource, and one for your collection if you are looking for the whole picture on the relationships between food, fuel, corruption, democracy, and how to resolve the challenging circumstances surrounding climate changes that our we are now experiencing; that will be our legacy to our children in the coming decades. This is a book about root problems and solutions. Probably the best collections of essays I have ever read. Both informative and inspirational to the highest degree. Next stop, Jeremy Rifkin's "The Hydrogen Economy", and "The Third Industrial Revolution".
