Overconsumption, population growth, dwindling natural resources, climate change, disease, contamination, storms, thirst, and war. Will the struggle to simply stay alive become humanity's future rather than its past? What happens if population pressures finally hit a threshold that tumbles the dominoes of food, water, energy, climate, pollution, and biodiversity, which in turn break up the intricate workings of the global society? Just how close we may be to a global tipping point becomes apparent when you take a helicopter view and see what's happening at the scale of the entire planet. In 'End Game' Anthony Barnosky and Elizabeth Hadly have compiled an overview of the calamities which we face from huge human population growth.
