Its premise is that Our Science, Innovation, Technology, Engineering and Art are breaking down just when we need it to ramp up. It goes on to state that sustainable development has always been part of human development and that it was these elements and how effectively they worked which allowed for our life on earth.
From the book back cover the text reads: Imagine a place where you can create things and make decisions where there are no hidden agendas and all stakeholders are treated equally. How would potential approaches surface, how would they be narrowed and selected, how would decisions be made. What tools and techniques would be used if they were not the greatest moneyed interests, the most politically powerful, or the most dangerous? --Review 2
What do Howard Hughes, the movie Flashdance and the Beatles have to do with Global Warming and Sustainable Development? They are all part of the discussion in this really creative book. It makes some bold claims and proposes a rather simple solution to tackle our problems in the next 100 years while casually referencing some movies, music, theater, and books from 431 BC to today. --Review 3
The Las Vegas Nevada sky is on the front cover. It uses the image of the Las Vegas Nevada sky behind the Philadelphia Art Museum and Water Works to challenge us. It ends with the interesting question of what the beautiful Las Vegas Nevada sky and this new city will look like in 100 years. A great ending of the previous chapter which was a paper to President Roosevelt. This incredible paper helped create our modern world that we currently enjoy. Could this book provide the same road map to our future? --Review 4
