Description

Our home planet is under extreme stress. In Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot (OVER)more than 170 photos paint a picture of a landscape so depressing, it might just encourage some attention and change. Photos depict every aspect of human impacts on the Earth, from overcrowded megacities to oil spills to devastating deforestation. The book says the world has passed a tipping point where our desire for more wealth will impoverish future generations.
