Brown asserts that the current environmental trends are threatening civilization itself. Society must change. Brown's book investigates a variety of issues ranging from global warming to social instability, all of which have an effect on society. He identifies ecological problems that he believes are the central cause to the global warming currently affecting our planet and proposes changes that individuals and governments can make to alter this course. Brown's primary concern is the interaction between global environmental trends and the world economy. In his proposed solutions is the need to raise energy efficiency and to harness alternative energy sources on a large scale.
