This accessible, mass market bestseller offers radical new explanations, arguments and solutions to the way we live and treat our planet PART ONE Elements of the Eco-Crunch Water Land The Seas PART TWO At the Limits and Beyond. Cities and Population Growth Animal Cities and the Agri-industry PART THREE The Protein Crunch: less meets more = crunch time!

Review:

Whatever you believe there's no denying that man's hunger and thirst is having a catastrophic effect on many ecosystems and natural balances. And that's what Jason Drew and David Lorimer's new book aims to set out in fascinating and enlightening detail. The environmental experts claim the global recession is a mere drop in the ocean compared to another storm that's brewing - a problem they call the 'protein crunch'. The Protein Crunch is a term they've given to the effect they say mankind has had on the supplies that we rely on above all others - food and water. Refreshingly their new book isn't the prophecy of doom I expected. Nor is it another lengthy moan about how little we recycle and how much fossil fuel we get through. It simply lays out the facts in a simple and interesting way. It's a book that makes you feel very small. Despite the huge amounts of evidence it puts forward to explain mankind's effect on our planet, it still leaves you feeling insignificant. Like we're all playing a tiny part in what could become a massive issue. But at the same time it offers a brutal reminder of just what is happening around us. It's a while since I've read a factual book that's made me think so much. --Burton Mail

Read 'The Protein Crunch: Civilisation on the Brink', written by Jason Drew. It is an easy read for all of us who want a summary of the key environmental issues we face, their realities, economics and their implications. With some harsh truths about the world we live in, controversial statements and amusing insights, Jason's look into the business of the environment and how to repair the future is motivational and remarkable. --Kindred Spirit magazine

...dishes up the harsh truths of the world in which we live, in a way that we can all relate to. --thelittlegreenmag.com
