Crossroads for Planet Earth

Scientific American does a special issue devoted to a single topic each September. The September 2005 issue focuses on sustainability of the earth. There are articles by people who have been leading the effort to educate the public and bring attention to the problems of sustainable devleopment: Joel Cohen on demographics; Jeffrey Sachs on the elimination of poverty; Barry Bloom on the transition from communicable to chronic diseases, Herman Daly on sustainability economics; and others. The September edition will not be available online until next month, but should be on the news stands now. It is worth considering as a keeper for your personal library.
