De uitgever over het boek
We all want to be happy. Yet as we consume ever more in a frantic bid for happiness, global warming worsens. Alarmed by drastic changes now occurring in the Earth's climate systems, the author, a climate scientist and suburban father of two, embarked on a journey to change his life and the world. He began by bicycling, growing food, meditating, and making other simple, fulfilling changes. Ultimately, he slashed his climate impact to under a tenth of the US average and became happier in the process.
Being the Change explores the connections between our individual daily actions and our collective predicament. It merges science, spirituality, and practical action to develop a satisfying and appropriate response to global warming.
Part one exposes our interconnected predicament: overpopulation, global warming, industrial agriculture, growthaddicted economics, a soldout political system, and a mindset of separation from nature. It also includes a readable but authoritative overview of climate science. Part two offers a response at once obvious and unprecedented: mindfully opting out of this broken system and aligning our daily lives with the biosphere.
The core message is deeply optimistic: living without fossil fuels is not only possible, it can be better.

De uitgever over het boek
A declaration of resistance, and a roadmap for radical change, from the generation that will be most screwed by climate change.
The Millennial generation could be first to experience the doomsday impacts of climate change. It's also the last generation able to do something about them. With time ticking down, 31-year-old journalist Geoff Dembicki journeyed to Silicon Valley, Canada's tar sands, Washington, DC, Wall Street and the Paris climate talks to find out if he should hope or despair. What he learned surprised him. Millions of people his age want to radically change our world, and they are at the forefront of resistance to the politicians and CEOs steering our planet towards disaster.
In Are We Screwed?, Dembicki gives a firsthand account of this movement, and the shift in generational values behind it, through the stories of young people fighting for their survival. It begins with a student who abandons society to live in the rainforest and ends with a Muslim feminist fomenting a political revolution. We meet a Brooklyn artist terrifying the oil industry, a Norwegian scientist running across the melting Arctic and an indigenous filmmaker challenging the worldview of Mark Zuckerberg.
Are We Screwed? makes a bold argument in these troubled times: A safer and more equitable future is more achievable than we've been led to believe. This book will forever change how you view the biggest existential challenge of our era and redefine the generation now battling against the odds to solve it.

De uitgever over het boek
The most important climate agreement in history, the Paris Agreement on Climate Change represents the commitment of the nations of the world to address and curb climate change. Signed in December 2015, it entered into force on 4th November 2016. Countries are moving into implementation, and efforts at all levels will be needed to fulfill its ambitious goals.
The Paris Climate Agreement: Commentary and Analysis combines a comprehensive legal appraisal and critique of the new Agreement with a practical and structured commentary to all its Articles. Part I discusses the general context for the Paris Agreement, detailing the scientific, political, and social drivers behind it, providing an overview of the pre-existing regime, and tracking the history of the negotiations. It examines the evolution of key concepts such as common but differentiated responsibilities, and analyses the legal form of the Agreement and the nature of its provisions. Part II comprises individual chapters on each Article of the Agreement, with detailed commentary of the provisions which highlights central aspects from the negotiating history and the legal nature of the obligations. It describes the institutional arrangements and considerations for national implementation, providing practical advice and prospects for future development. Part III reflects on the Paris Agreement as a whole: its strengths and weaknesses, its potential for further development, and its relationship with other areas of public international law and governance.
The book is an invaluable resource for academics and practitioners, policy makers, and actors in the private sector and civil society, as they negotiate the implementation of the Agreement in domestic law and policy.

De uitgever over het boek
De revolutie van de nieuwe economie 4.0 wordt overal zichtbaar. Deze wereld van 4.0 wordt gekenmerkt door drie ontwikkelingen die wereldwijd een enorme maatschappelijke en economische impact hebben. Ook in Nederland. Alles draait om een versnelling van digitalisering, de opmars van slimme technologieën en vergaande klimaatmaatregelen, waarmee de opwarming van de aarde moet worden tegengegaan.
Bij technologische innovaties zien we vooral een sterke toename van het gebruik van kunstmatige intelligentie, het internet of things, big data, robotica, blockchain-technologie en 3D-printen. De effecten van economie 4.0 zijn ongekend. Alles wordt op zijn kop gezet. Bedrijven die willen overleven moeten hun businessmodel aanpassen. Werkgevers en werknemers krijgen te maken met een arbeidsmarkt die onherkenbaar verandert. Ook overheden en onderwijsinstellingen zullen ingrijpend het roer moeten omgooien.
Willem Vermeend en Ruud Koornstra verkennen in dit boek de immense gevolgen van deze ongekende revolutie. Wat betekent dit voor Nederland, voor onze economie, werkgelegenheid en welvaart? Vermeend en Koornstra schetsen een toekomst waarin we in de 4.0-wereld vooroplopen en door te kiezen voor slim en groen! In Nederland moet het beleid van overheden, werkgevers en werknemers gericht zijn op een maximale inzet van slimme technologieën en het vergroenen van onze economie.
