Developed countries, endowed with capacity and financial stock, can recommend their own green economy models to less developed countries only after achieving a high quality of life within planetary boundaries. Those are my personal thoughts in response to the problems raised by the authors.
They are nothing more than reference opinions, as are the solutions presented by the authors. We could make even more progress if we fully grasp what we scientifically know and what we do not based on the broad information in this book, and if we start seeking our own version of solutions anchored by our own value judgement with clear recognition of the real challenge to change our common practice and to transform social system. There is plenty of leeway to ensure sustainable capacity growth so that we can solve these problems.

It does not leave us with the problem alone. It takes us to the blueprint for a true-green economy. It is about the way that we can reinvent growth for all, which is affordable, equitable and sustainable.
Their book is a timely wake-up call for all politicians, businessmen and citizens of Earth. The focus is on other issues, like finance and the economy. Wealth generation based on carbon can not continue much longer. We are borrowing resources belonging to future generations, and in the process imperiling their right to livelihood. The combination of solid science, vast experience from politics and public affairs and profound compassion makes this book extraordinarily useful.
This book will help citizens, and maybe even politicians and economists, understand what is happening.
