The Answers: Sustainability

Book Description

How can you learn to live more sustainably, without giving up your lifestyle, and why should you care? We often hear the terms sustainability and sustainable development, but how much do we really understand about what they mean? Is sustainability just climate change in a different package? What's the difference between global warming and climate change? And, most importantly, what can be done about it? As well as explaining some of the most pressing problems, this book answers these questions and looks at how we are progressing. While many of these problems can seem overwhelming when viewed in isolation, many of the answers are, in fact, connected. Quite often the adoption of one solution will solve more than one problem at a time. Crucially, this book also explains that the individual has real power. It is easy to feel overwhelmed by the scale of the problems the world is facing, yet in truth, each one of us has a significant contribution to make in all aspects of our lives
