Summary
"The developed world, increasingly aware of "inconvenient truths" about global warming and sustainability, is turning its attention to possible remedies - eco-efficiency, sustainable development, and corporate social responsibility, among others. But such measures are mere Band-Aids, and they may actually do more harm than good, says John Ehrenfeld, a pioneer in the field of industrial ecology, In this deeply considered book, Ehrenfeld challenges conventional understandings of "solving" environmental problems and offers a radically new set of strategies to attain sustainability."--Jacket
