'One of those who has been warning me of [a coming crisis] for a long time is Paul Gilding, the Australian environmental business expert. He has a name for this moment--when both Mother Nature and Father Greed have hit the wall at once--"The Great Disruption."' * Thomas Friedman in the New York Times *
'Gilding says that our current economic model is driving the system over a cliff. We are already living beyond the planet's capacity to support us and a crisis is no longer avoidable' * The Times *
'If you're planning to stick around for the 21st century, this might be a useful book to consult' * Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth and The End of Nature *
