ByShortcut Edition

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
* Our summary is short, simple and pragmatic. It allows you to have the essential ideas of a big book in less than 30 minutes. By reading this summary, you will learn how "low-tech" could help create a more sustainable world. You will also learn : that shortages of natural resources are not new; that high-tech is not an answer to resource scarcity; that you have to give up some of your comfort in order for society to be more sustainable; that the concept of low technology combines an ideology with techniques; that there are obstacles to the transition to a sustainable society. The risks of a major climate and social crisis are now undeniable. Consequently, many solutions are emerging in an attempt to curb the possible collapse of civilization. In the scientific world, researchers are betting on technical progress through high technologies. These are supposed to save the planet thanks to intelligent networks, nanotechnologies or renewable energies. However, these technologies consume ever more scarce resources and their complexity makes them difficult to apply on a global scale. Shouldn't a solution be found on the "low tech" side instead? *Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!
