Chapter 5

We cannot undo the damage that Homo sapiens has caused, but we can act to mitigate some of these problems.  However, six prerequisites must be in place in order to make any progress.  The two most important are strong leadership and education.  Then we must agree to the concepts of population reduction, conservation of natural resources, non-growth-based economies, and economic valuation changes.  Only then can we begin to implement specific steps to save our species and our planet.
