Audible Editor Reviews

Worldwatch.org celebrates its 20th year as one of the world's preeminent environmental organizations. Think of this audio as a refresher on the most important environmental conversations and innovations in these past years.  Reviewing green economy, growth, and environmental laws and politics, this book is a clear, informed overview of the state of the "green movement" today. Jack Garrett' narration is deliberate and slow, as if to give his listeners time to jot down notes, or simply reflect. The book was written in 2012, so the audio already feels slightly dated - for example the audiobook is written before the sustainable development summit known as Rio 2012. A great listen for anyone feeling like they need a global issues review before they face the future.

    "Depressing but important"

    The narration of this book is somewhat overdone (overenthusiastic) and gets irritating after a while. I had to listen to anther audiobook in between to not get too put off. But what the book has to tell is important, even if it is not a happy story. Our politicians should be forced to read this book, as it is full of examples of short-sighted political decisions that will compromise the future of our children. But it is also full of good examples of where "normal" people have acted in a way to ensure a better future for all. This book should be put in the hands of all high school students, to ensure that the next generation does not repeat the short-sightedness of our generation. The world can still be saved. It is not too late, but we have to act much more decisively and much faster. The message to all good people is: you can do a lot of things to help the world to be thriving place place even in the future. The message to all less good people is: read and repent!
