We’ve outpaced our planet. It’s a truth we can no longer escape or ignore. Of the 7 billion people who live on the earth, 2.7 billion struggle to live on less than $2 per day. Four hundred ocean zones are completely devoid of life, with one dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico estimated to be the size of New Jersey. We use eleven times as much energy as we did just fifty years ago.
In Enough Is Enough, Rob Dietz and Dan O’Neill urge us to shift our focus from the symptoms to the cause: the pursuit of never-ending economic growth. Since we live in a world of finite resources, we must change our economic goal from the madness of more to the wisdom of enough.
