Every European leaves lifetime’s waste one thousand times his or her body weight. For every person in the Third World, two thousand square meters of rainforest are destroyed each year. Our habits, and our numbers, are wrecking the planet.
Crisis spurred the agricultural and industrial revolutions. It may now speed the third revolution – the transition to sustainable development. There reace is on between our power to damage, and our power to achieve balance with the environment.
Can we act before circumstances force our hand? Hamlet had less than half an hour to live when he finally killed Claudius. Can we break the Hamlet syndrome?
