The Conundrum by David Owen

I wrote a mini-review of The Conundrum, by David Owen, and posted it on Google+.  It’s a book about climate change, resource depletion, and that science and technology will only make matters worse.

I didn’t like it, not just because I’m a science geek, but because Owen makes poor arguments in it.  Unfortunately, I agree with him on his major premise – that only massively lowering consumption will work to save humanity in the long run – but his book offers nothing useful to advance or even defend this position.  Read my Google+ post for more.

Short version: doesn’t bother with The Conundrum.
