The geography of hope, a tour of the world we need, by Chris Turner

Summary
To offset the grim predictions of environmentalists, Turner describes solutions already at work around the world, from Canada's largest wind farm to Asia's greenest building and Europe's most eco-friendly communities. He also seeks out the next generation of political, economic, social, and spiritual institutions that could provide the global foundations for a sustainable future, including the parliament houses of Scandinavia and the villages of southern India, where microcredit finance has remade the social fabric. Some descriptions of sex and some strong language. 2007
