Contrary to the messages of impending environmental gloom and disaster widely projected in the media, the fifteen contributors to this book argue that countless scientific issues are not as clear-cut as is often suggested, hence it is possible to construct a more optimistic vision for the future of the globe than that which is often delivered. They argue for a critical re-reading of the results of certain scientific analyses and offer nuanced interpretations of such issues as eco-catastrophism, global warming, sea-level rise, availability of water, biodiversity, forest cover, population change, food supply, energy, and conflict. The chapters represent the proceedings of a conference held at the headquarters of the Société de Géographie de Paris in September 2010. - (HC)
