A Better Planet : Forty Big Ideas for a Sustainable Future, Hardback Book

A Better Planet : Forty Big Ideas for a Sustainable Future Hardback

Edited by Daniel C. Esty


A practical, bipartisan call to action from the world's leading thinkers on the environment and sustainability Sustainability has emerged as a global priority over the past several years.

The 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change and the adoption of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals through the United Nations have highlighted the need to address critical challenges such as the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, water shortages, and air pollution.

But in the United States, partisan divides, regional disputes, and deep disagreements over core principles have made it nearly impossible to chart a course toward a sustainable future. This timely new book, edited by celebrated scholar Daniel C.

Esty, offers fresh thinking and forward-looking solutions from environmental thought leaders across the political spectrum.

The book's forty essays cover such subjects as ecology, environmental justice, Big Data, public health, and climate change, all with an emphasis on sustainability.

The book focuses on moving toward sustainability through actionable, bipartisan approaches based on rigorous analytical research.
