New paper presenting a completely different approach to sustainability, in FORM, FUNCTION, FORESTS AND FOSSILS: SUSTAINABILITY REVISITED 

DIRECTOR'S CUT

The latest challenging thinking for our director, "Agriculture: the Jeckyl and Hyde that feeds the world" offers a completely new understanding, paving the way for a new agriculture.  Provocative, hard-hitting and revolutionary, Skene points out that our current approaches will only further exacerbate the plight we find ourselves in. Agriculture may be feeding us, but it is also leading us closer to planetary collapse, and is perhaps the biggest threat to our continued presence on this planet.
