  • What is the nature of Nature? Is it harmonious and graceful? Is it divine and providential? Is it cruel and wild?

  • Recently public attention has turned toward the intricate interrelation between economic growth and global warming. This book focuses on this nexus but broadens the framework to study this issue. Growth is seen as global growth, which affects the global environment and climate change.
