about

During recent years, environmental debate worldwide has been dominated by climate change, carbon emissions and eff orts to achieve low carbon economies. But a number of academic, technical, political, business and NGO initiatives indicate that there is a new wave of environmental attention focused on a wholly different set of subjects: namely that of natural capital, ecosystem services and biodiversity, or in other words, what Nature does for us. From recycling miracles in the soil to the abundant genetic codebook underpinning our food and pharmaceutical needs, Nature provides the ecosystem services that underlie our economies. This book is fi lled with immediately impactful stories of the challenges and grave problems that we face; as well as with tales that reveal the promise of more enlightened activity. Tony Juniper's book will change the way you think about life, the planet and the economy.
