The book concentrates on the battle of climate change and global warming and sustainable development as well. There is a major focus on the present and also on the future and the number of pressures that are being faced. The present care and efforts that are made have a major impact on the overall possible future. The author has also referred to sustainable development as a mirage. All efforts that we make are towards a movable target and the actions always tend to fall short of the target. Hence as explained above Foster has referred to the target, like a slipping slop. The author explains that although we might feel that we are reaching the goal and have been able to sustain and improve the current issue of global warming. The author has in a very effective manner discussed the possible ways to break through understanding sustainability. He explains that the main focus needs to be on the present and not too much on the obligations of the future. This he explains will help people get a grip on what they do each day and make small changes and improvements. Foster also explains that humans should avoid rising the carbon challenge now and should focus on this rather than on micromanaging the long term issues. Foster also brings out an excellent suggestion and requests to focus on the science and magnitude of the issue in terms of scientific findings and not simply based on strategies and game plans. The author has also suggested some wonderful ideas like using the short terms processes and dynamics to help develop a better learning for the future. The book also includes possible substitute sustainability models and helps in the exploration of how these models might work in different areas like the use of energy, enterprises, governance and also education. The book in some ways provides practical solutions to the issue and also helps build a strong strategy to face the mirage.
