A practical, bipartisan call to action from the world's leading thinkers on the environment and sustainability. The 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change and the adoption of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals through the United Nations have highlighted the need to address critical challenges such as the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, water shortages, and air pollution. But in the United States, partisan divides, regional disputes, and deep disagreements over core principles have made it nearly impossible to chart a course toward a sustainable future. This timely new book, edited by Daniel C. Esty, offers fresh thinking and forward-looking solutions from environmental thought leaders across the political spectrum.
