Until now, no one has put together the full environmental and ethical story facing planet Earth as Professor Tor Hundloe has done. In From Buddha to Bono he has put squarely on the agenda the key matters which almost all, including Al Gore, are still dodging for fear of the heavy hand of the church and of conservative economists. This is nothing less than the need to eventually reduce our global population; the need to recognize that our market economy does not have to grow forever to retain its vitality; and above all, the need to get serious about linking the global economy to the global environment. Today, we desperately seek solutions to climate change, water scarcity, pollution, and third-world poverty. But in order to go forward, first we must go back. From Buddha to Bono: Seeking Sustainability traces the development of the three key disciplines underpinning modern environmental decision making, otherwise known as sustainability science: ecology, economics, and ethics.
