Teised raamatud teemal:
The world faces numerous environmental trends of disruption and decline such as rising temperatures, falling water tables and rising sea levels. In addition, the world faces the peaking of oil, the addition of 70 million people per year, a widening global economic divide and the spread of international terrorism. The global scale and growing complexity of issues facing our fast-forward world have no precedent. In "Plan B", Lester R. Brown highlights how in ignoring nature's deadlines for dealing with these issues we risk the disruption of economic progress.

Arvustused

"Exciting... a masterpiece!" Ted Turner "There is something wonderfully homely, reassuring and reasonable about Brown's radicalism. But in these dark and cynical days, radical it certainly remains." New Scientist"
