In this book Dr Geoff Wescott proposes a new approach to environmental decision making. He suggests we move forward from relying solely on individual virtuous action to improve our environment. He argues that the time has come to get ʻback to basicsʼ: for governments to be decisive and courageous and make positive environmental decisions in the interests of their current and future constituents rather than continue to be locked into short term decision making at the beck and call of corporations and large political donors.
