World Went Wrong And How The Countries Of The World went wrong and how the countries of the world to the countries of the world united to the problems created in the years priorI was interested in this book because I thought it would hold some secret knowledge of how I could live a sustainable lifestyle today That wasn t the case although there were uniue things written about which I started to do in my own life in the past year such as deconstructing clothing and refashioning them rather than donating them or buying new clothesWhere I feel the story fell short is in not addressing some of the environmental issues we are currently living with and how to fix them The Fukushima nuclear failing is addressed mainly as a lead in to a story in the future on how we closed down and stopped using nuclear Yet the issue of what happens to all this waste left behind isn t addressed Which is why I am only giving the book 4 stars But I am also giving the book 4 stars because it is a book of hope and right now we need to hope and believe changes will be addressed before it is too late I interviewed Sir Porritt on my radio show after hearing him speak Porritt s futuristic tale has already proven to have come true in some respects Will all of this happen no but if you want to get a good picture of what the world is going to be like in 2050 then this is a great read to help explore what a sustaina.
