A VINTAGE PAPERBACK ORIGINALJust 10,000 years ago, there were only one million humans on Earth.By 1800, just over two hundred years ago, there were one billion of us.By 1960, there were three billion. There are now over seven billion of us. By 2050, there will be at least nine billion other people—and, sometime near the end of this century, there will be at least ten billion of us. There is simply no known way to provide this many people with clothes, food, and fresh water. And any action we take to address these issues will turn up the thermostat on global warming. Stephen Emmott has dedicated his career to researching the effects of humans on the Earth’s natural systems. This is his call to arms, an urgent plea to re-imagine the interconnected web of our global problems in a new light.
