Our Ecological Footprint presents a powerful model for measuring humanity's impact on the Earth to reduce the harm we are causing the planet before it's too late.
While some people believe we can find a middle ground between environmental conservation and economic development, or that future technological discoveries will solve the problem, the authors warn that our planet's limited resources simply can't support an economic system based on unlimited growth. Our Ecological Footprint offers a valuable tool to help us live more sustainably and safeguard our natural resources for generations to come.
Dr Luca Marazzi holds a PhD in freshwater ecology from the Environmental Change Research Centre at University College, London. He is currently undertaking postdoctoral research at the Southeast Environment Research Center, Florida International University.
