The World in 2050: Four Forces Shaping Civilization's Northern Future

The World in 2050: Four Forces Shaping Civilization's Northern FutureLaurence C. Smith
Smith, a UCLA geography professor, explores megatrends through computer model projections to describe "with reasonable scientific credibility, what our world might look like in forty years' time, should things continue as they are now." Laying out "ground rules" for himself--including an assumption of incremental advances rather than big technology breakthroughs and no accounting for "hidden genies" such as a decades-long depression or meteorite impact--he identifies four global forces likely to determine our future: human population growth and migration; growing demand for control over such natural resource "services" as photosynthesis and bee pollination; globalization; and climate change. He sees the "New North" as "something like America in 1803, just after the Louisiana Purchase... harsh, dangerous, and ecologically fragile." Aside from his observations of "a profound return of autonomy and dignity to many aboriginal people" through increasing political power and integration into the global economy.

Deep Future: The Next 100,000 Years of Life on Earth

Deep Future: The Next 100,000 Years of Life on Earth Curt Stager
A bold, far-reaching look at how our actions will decide the planet?s future for millennia to come.Imagine a planet where North American and Eurasian navies are squaring off over shipping lanes through an acidified, ice-free Arctic. Centuries later, their northern descendants retreat southward as the recovering sea freezes over again. And later still, future nations plan how to avert an approaching Ice Age... by burning what remains of our fossil fuels. These are just a few of the events that are likely to befall Earth and human civilization in the next 100,000 years. And it will be the choices we make in this century that will affect that future more than those of any previous generation. We are living at the dawn of the Age of Humans; the only question is how long that age will last.

The Great Disruption: Why the Climate Crisis Will Bring On the End of Shopping and the Birth of a New World

The Great Disruption: Why the Climate Crisis Will Bring On the End of Shopping and the Birth of a New WorldPaul Gilding
Gilding, former director of Greenpeace International and now on the faculty at Cambridge University?s Program for Sustainable Leadership, proposes that global warming is just one piece of an impending planetary collapse caused by our overuse of resources. According to the Global Footprint Network, we surpassed Earth?s capacity in 1988, and by 2009, we needed the resources of 1.4 planets to sustain our economy?and any increases in efficiencies that some claim will solve the problem are likely only to encourage us to use more. Gilding argues that, like addicts who need to hit bottom, we energy users will deny our problem until we ?face head-on the risk of collapse,? but when we do, we will address the emergency with the commitment of our response to WWII and begin a real transformation to a sustainable economy built on equality, quality of life, and harmony with the ecosystem.

The Ripple Effect: The Fate of Fresh Water in the Twenty-First Century

The Ripple Effect: The Fate of Fresh Water in the Twenty-First Century Alex Prud'homme
Like Daniel Yergin?s classic The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power, Prud?homme?s The Ripple Effect is a masterwork of investigation and dramatic narrative. With striking instincts for a revelatory story, Prud?homme introduces readers to an array of colorful, obsessive, brilliant?and sometimes shadowy?characters through whom these issues come alive. Prud?homme traversed the country, and he takes readers into the heart of the daily dramas that will determine the future of this essential resource?from the alleged murder of a water scientist in a New Jersey purification plant, to the epic confrontation between salmon fishermen and copper miners in Alaska, to the poisoning of Wisconsin wells, to the epidemic of intersex fish in the Chesapeake Bay, to the wars over fracking for natural gas. Michael Pollan has changed the way we think about the food we eat; Alex Prud?homme will change the way we think about the water we drink.
