We all want to do good in the world and help third and fourth world countries become self sufficient. By banning extraction of resources these countries sit upon it's impossible to bring their living standards to acceptable levels. In need to raise their living conditions it's important for these countries to rely on their share of natural resources they have been blessed with and be able to exploit it. There has to be a fine balance between reducing your carbon footprint and letting exploitation of resources to benefit mankind.
Overall, this book is a thought provoking read and I recommend it for anyone who is up for some introspection.
Thank you NetGalley for the eARC. This book is what I'd gift my environmental conservation friends- it'd make some great conversation and shape policies and narratives written by young people in organizations.
