Synopsis

The Human Quest serves as an inspiration and guide for action as humankind faces a turning point in our history and the state of the Earth. For the first time arises science and art in a way that has never been done before, this unique book shows the nine perspectives of planetary boundaries with fantastic color photos and illustrations. The e-book includes exclusive video clips by Mattias Klum and a foreword by former President of the United States Bill Clinton. Over the past 50 years, our unsustainable ways of living have begun to put immense pressure on the planetary processes that support our well-being and economic development. The Human Quest tells how, but is also a source of hope and innovation. Integrating the latest scientific insights with the power of images and real world experience, Johan Rockström and Mattias Klum merge evidence from the many scientific disciplines that study how planet Earth operates and the relations between ourselves and the Earth system, with illustrations of real, on-¬the-¬ground stories – dispatches from a planet that is subject to rapid, human-¬induced changes with potentially devastating effects.
