Bankrupting nature : denying our planetary boundaries by Anders Wijkman( Book )

21 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This powerful book shows us that we are in deep denial about the magnitude of the global environmental challenges and resource constraints facing the world. Despite growing scientific consensus on major environmental threats as well as resource depletion, societies are largely continuing with business as usual, at best attempting to tinker at the margins of the problems. The authors argue that regardless of whether governments respond to the economic crisis through additional stimulus packages or reduced government spending, environmental and resource constraints will remain. The crisis will be exacerbated by the combination of climate change, ecosystem decline and resource scarcity, in particular crude oil. The concept of Planetary Boundaries is introduced as a powerful explanation of the limits of the biosphere to sustain continued conventional growth. The book breaks the long silence on population, criticizing donor countries for not doing enough to support the education of girls and reproductive health services. It is shown that an economy built on the continuous expansion of material consumption is not sustainable. De-growth, however, is no solution either. The growth dilemma can only be addressed through a transformation of the economic system. A strong plea is made for abandoning GDP growth as the key objective for development. The focus should instead be on a limited number of welfare indicators. The trickle-down concept is seriously questioned, to be replaced by one of sufficiency. Rich countries are called upon to hold back their material growth to leave room for a rising living standard among the poor. Alternative business models are presented, such as moving from products to services or towards a circular economy based on re-use, reconditioning and recylcing – all with the aim of facilitating sustainable development" --Back cover
Come on! : capitalism, short-termism, population and the destruction of the planet by Ernst U. von Weizsäcker( )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current worldwide trends are not sustainable. The Club of Romes warnings published in the book Limits to Growth are still valid. Remedies that are acceptable for the great majority tend to make things worse. We seem to be in a philosophical crisis. Pope Francis says it clearly: our common home is in deadly danger. Analyzing the philosophical crisis, the book comes to the conclusion that the world may need a "new enlightenment"; one that is not based solely on doctrine, but instead addresses a balance between humans and nature, as well as a balance between markets and the state, and the short versus long term. To do this we need to leave behind working in "silos" in favor of a more systemic approach that will require us to rethink the organization of science and education
Wir sind dran. Club of Rome: Der große Bericht Was wir ändern müssen, wenn wir bleiben wollen. Eine neue Aufklärung für eine volle Welt by Ernst U. von Weizsäcker( )

3 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In seinem ersten, weltweit beachteten Bericht zur Lage der Menschheit ("Die Grenzen des Wachstums", 1972) prognostizierte der Club of Rome den ultimativen Kollaps des Weltsystems in den nächsten 50 Jahren. Seitdem hat sich viel verändert und wir verfügen über genügend neues Wissen für die erforderlichen Veränderungen zum Erhalt unserer Welt. Sehr wohl sind laufende Trends aufzuhalten und sind wir in der Lage, bestimmte Philosophien und Überzeugungen ad acta zu legen. Somit können wir uns auf eine aufregende Reise in die Zukunft machen. Der hier vorliegende neue Bericht des Club of Rome formuliert die Agenda für alle gesellschaftlich relevanten und möglichen Schritte der nächsten Jahre: faktenorientiert und debattenstark.

Natura in bancarotta : perché rispettare i confini del pianeta by Johan Rockström( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in Italian and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ci è stato insegnato che dobbiamo consumare per crescere e che dobbiamo consumare senza rallentare. Ci siamo impegnati a fondo nel seguire questa indicazione, e continuiamo a farlo. Non possiamo permettercelo? Nessun problema: il sistema finanziario ci concederà prestiti facili per comprare case, automobili, lavatrici o qualsiasi altra cosa. Dopotutto, è solo quando consumiamo che gli indicatori della crescita puntano verso l'alto e il mondo è felice. Ma la realtà è diversa. La pressione delle attività umane sul nostro pianeta ha raggiunto un'intensità tale da rendere possibili cambiamenti ambientali improvvisi e potenzialmente catastrofici. Per evitarli, "Natura in bancarotta" propone un nuovo approccio alla sostenibilità. Invece di concentrarsi su un unico aspetto, come di solito avviene, Johan Rockström e Anders Wijkman individuano i nove sistemi che consentono al nostro pianeta di funzionare e sostentarci, e per ognuno propongono un "confine" da non superare se non vogliamo innescare retroazioni pericolose. Purtroppo abbiamo già superato tre di questi confini, ed è quindi urgente una radicale trasformazione del sistema economico e produttivo. Servono modelli di business alternativi e un'economia circolare basata su riuso, ricondizionamento e riciclo. In numerosi settori occorre passare dalla vendita di prodotti all'offerta di servizi. Ci sono molti modi per avviare la transizione globale verso la sostenibilità, ma queste azioni, da sole, non bastano
