The Blueprint: Averting Global Collapse

Daniel Rirdan. Corinno Press, $29.95 hardcover (494p) ISBN 978-0-9849620-0-6
Within 15 years we must remake our world. That is the message of global strategist Rirdan in this informative but grim account of the main stressors ravaging the Earth's ecosystem and the technological marvels that may facilitate remedies. The author calls for a shift to "lower-impact technologies" and reduced consumption, supporting his argument with copiously documented facts in areas ranging from global warming to land degradation and destruction of ocean resources. Yet for all the grave challenges facing the planet, Rirdan indicates that change may be possible, noting possible developments in housing, agriculture, transportation, and energy. More controversial are his proposed solutions: population control, a new economic system, and a move toward world government. However implausible some of these proposals may be, nobody can fail to be challenged by Rirden's broad vision. His impassioned writing will engage both the layman and the expert, and his meticulously drafted blueprint merits the attention of anyone concerned about the future.
