People are having an unprecedented impact on the planet through the expansion of industrial capacity, and the urbanization and socio-cultural changes that accompany it. Indeed, geologists now propose that this should be regarded as a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene. Surviving it will be quite a challenge. To do so, will require a rapid and effective transition to sustainability. A transition to sustainability may be necessary, but is it possible? It will certainly not be easy. This paper considers what the environmental movement can do to help make it happen: a transition to a world that sustains abundant, diverse and worthwhile life, human and otherwise, and does so humanely. This book examines the why? what? and how? of a transition to sustainability.
