Editorial Reviews


A useful volume in the ongoing dialogue about humankind's impact on ecosystems and worldwide environmental problems... Recommended.



Humanity's Footprint stands out because of its clarity, authenticity, and honesty. Dodds tackles issues with refreshing and impressive courage.

(David Orr, Oberlin College)|

The message contained in Humanity's Footprint is desperately needed. Very few books concerned with the environment are written and documented by a scientist who has a distinguished career in the investigation of natural ecosystems. There are not many books with as sufficient a breadth as Walter Dodds's book.

(David Pimentel, Cornell University)

Format: Paperback
Most of the natural systems that humans rely on for survival are in jeopardy. The earth's resources are irrefutably finite. Science predicts dire consequences if humankind fails to initiate strategies to stem population growth and rampant consumption. Author Walter K. Dodds presents a worldwide perspective on global warming, including fascinating statistics about human resource use and its implications for the future. He examines the most potentially threatening effects of human behavior. To shed some new light, he offers solution-oriented insights from game theory, which studies the conditions under which people who are naturally pursuing their own self-interests will cooperate for the greater good. getAbstract recommends this guide to global warming issues.
