Présentation de l'éditeur

Citizens expect their governments to lead on sustainability. But from largely disappointing international conferences like Rio II to the U.S.’s failure to pass meaningful climate legislation, governments’ progress has been lackluster. That’s not to say leadership is absent; it just often comes from the bottom up rather than the top down. Action—on climate, species loss, inequity, and other sustainability crises—is being driven by local, people’s, women’s, and grassroots movements around the world, often in opposition to the agendas pursued by governments and big corporations.

These diverse efforts are the subject of the latest volume in the Worldwatch Institute’s highly regarded State of the World series. The 2014 edition, marking the Institute’s 40th anniversary, examines both barriers to responsible political and economic governance as well as gridlock-shattering new ideas. The authors analyze a variety of trends and proposals, including regional and local climate initiatives, the rise of benefit corporations and worker-owned firms, the need for energy democracy, the Internet’s impact on sustainability, and the importance of eco-literacy. A consistent thread throughout the book is that informed and engaged citizens are key to better governance.

The book is a clear-eyed yet ultimately optimistic assessment of citizens’ ability to govern for sustainability. By highlighting both obstacles and opportunities, State of the World 2014 shows how to effect change within and beyond the halls of government. This volume will be especially useful for policymakers, environmental nonprofits, students of environmental studies, sustainability, or economics—and citizens looking to jumpstart significant change around the world.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 interesting essays but slightly repetative 22 mai 2014

This is a collection of short pieces on sustainability from a variety of authors. Very good authors, but different authors. As might be expected, some are better than others and there is the occasional repetition of theme. My observation is that it is inevitable in such a work. The Kindle price was low enough that I took a risk. I have found it thought provoking, but not revolutionary. It has further cemented my view that sustainability is tough, frequently ill-defined and unlikely something humans will address until we are truly in the midst of a crisis.

As always the Worldwatch Institute presents a well prepared and eloquent view of reality. Would like one that compares the essence of the past books into new a really new vision.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Global Good Sense (and survival) Requires Coordinated, Compassionate Governance 25 mai 2014
Par David L. Hicks - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This volume of State of the World tackles the complexities and necessity of responding effectively to huge economic disparities, rates of critical resource depletions, and demographic and developmental trajectories. There are many bad, perhaps even lethal, habits to be cured - population growth, water waste and scarcity, soil loss, continued reliance on fossils fuels, and unregulated corporate hegemony. As a species, we are ill-prepared for and inattentive to the dismal environmental future we are creating. Competent global governance focused intensely on multi-dimensional sustainability is likely our last and best hope.

This volume is filled with hundreds of hopeful strategies at every level of governance for reversing our worsening prospects for a widely shared quality of life.
