The Royal Society, Britain's oldest science institution, has released a new report on human ecological problems and prospects.
Just in time for students in the Core 3 class, Environmental Sustainability, to begin to outline their final essay, which is a response to the question "Can human civilization become ecologically sustainable?"
I've just had chance to flick through the report summary and a few pages, but it seems excellent and filled with key, recently updated data.
The report particularly takes on a key problem that hardly anyone has been willing to address in recent years, the difficulty with resource consumption. We were just talking about that yesterday in class.
I expect this to be a very influential publication.
