Daniel C. Esty - A Better Planet: Forty Big Ideas for a Sustainable Future — at Politics and Prose at Union Market
Defying the gridlock and denialism that has thwarted efforts to take action on climate change, water shortages, and air pollution, this volume presents nearly forty practical solutions to sustainability offered by environmental leaders from across the political spectrum. Edited by Daniel Esty, Hillhouse Professor of Environmental Law and Policy at Yale’s School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and Yale Law School, and former head of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the book includes fresh thinking from figures such as Saleem H. Ali, Michelle L. Belle, Thomas E. Lovejoy, and William Nordhaus on topics ranging from, environmental justice, big data, and waste materials management to fracking, systems analysis, public lands, and disaster risk.
