Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: An innovative anthology that offers a global perspective on how people think about predicting the future of life on Earth. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_0300184611
Inhaltsangabe: This anthology provides an historical overview of the scientific ideas behind environmental prediction and how, as predictions about environmental change have been taken more seriously and widely, they have affected politics, policy, and public perception. Through an array of texts and commentaries that examine the themes of progress, population, environment, biodiversity and sustainability from a global perspective, it explores the meaning of the future in the twenty-first century. Providing access and reference points to the origins and development of key disciplines and methods, it will encourage policy makers, professionals, and students to reflect on the roots of their own theories and practices.
