About this book
Exposé of the myths of green capitalism, appealing to the reader to respond rationally to the current environmental crisis. What choices and structural forces led us to this perilous place?
Faced with the unprecedented threat of climate change, the contemporary world has turned to a solution that is all too prosaic-consumerism. This book explores the rapid expansion of environmental production and consumption. It argues that we are coming to rely on consumerism as the solution to the very problems it has helped to cause.
