Click on the link above to find an interview on the New Scientist website with Jonathon Porritt, a highly renowned figure in sustainable development and author of “The World We Made: Alex McKay’s Story from 2050”.
I’d never heard of this book before, but this interview has inspired me to take a look of it, and it looks like a fascinating read.
The World We Made… is a refreshingly upbeat and optimistic view on the future of the Earth. It highlights how we can realistically look forward to a sustainable future, using technologies being developed at the moment. It seems to have a fantastic combination of a positive outlook along with achievable results that could well led us to be in a more environmentally and sustainable position in 37 years time.
I myself am extremely passionate about sustainability and it makes a change to see a real visionary who believes that sustainable technologies are not only necessary, but entirely possible.
Reading this interview, you get a real feeling not only for Jonathon Porritt’s enthusiasm and passion for developing sustainable technologies, but also for his incredible insight and knowledge in this area.
This is extremely interesting, exciting and inspiring stuff, and I personally can’t wait to get hold of a copy of this book.
