Great book. Multiple ways shown in this book about how everything is interdependent and interconnected, including us, and why all processes should be circular. This book, like "Upcycle", demonstrates how regenerating and restoring the world to being more hospitable to all life, requires us to improve human life. Being sustainable and becoming part of the system, rather than fighting the system as our current agriculture system does with insecticide and herbicidal chemicals, is counter productive to improving today and tomorrow. It is a hopeful book. Overall it explains how we can "Undo" traditional ways of living by making clear what we can do. The coming attractions section explains operationalizes exciting possibilities that are in the works. These coming attractions are restorative in ways that will also make living better for everyone and everything. Enjoy.

And by obeying the laws of arithmetic. And without asking companies to lose money. And without asking people to go on austerity.
Innovative nuclear energy is probably part of the solution. So is eating food that has less of on impact on the planet.
Everything is solid science.
There is actually better news out there, if you are willing to project technology forwards in a reasonable way. There is nothing as outrageous as Diamondes "Abundance".
But this is a great way to break the defeatism.
