Publisher's Summary

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 17 Sustainable Development Goals through the United Nations have highlighted the need to address critical challenges, like 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 40 essays cover such subjects as ecology, environmental justice, Big Data, public health, and climate change, all with an emphasis on sustainability. This book focuses on moving toward sustainability through actionable, bipartisan approaches based on rigorous analytical research. 

Narrators include Erica Sullivan, William Hughes, Alex Boyles, Kevin Kenerly, Kate Mulligan, Traber Burns, and Caroline Shaffer.

GMO to solve climate problems?! Really?!

A mix of interesting research and ideas with those that made me wonder about the financial support for the authors... One of them was in the essay number 5. When addressing the climate change strategy the author said “bioengineering allows precision”?! Really?! I thought that the lack of biodiversity is precisely the problem with the GMO. They can not adapt to the change due to the lack of gene variations.
