The 1990s are not only a time of change; they are also a time when we must change. The signs are everywhere - the garbage clogging our cities; the disappearnace of fish and fisheries from our coasts; the changes to our waterways; worldwide starvation; global warming; the polluted air we breathe and the contaminated water we drink; the countries with too many people and too little food; species vanishing faster than we can count them. In the essays Time to Change, David Suzuki first calls our attention to the signs and then considers the realms of science, politics and economics to find not only the source of our problems, but also the ground on which we can - and cannot - place our hope for the future. With his customary no-nonsense approach, he lays bare our comfortable assumptions and takes a hard look at some modern conundrums before revealing the source of his hope for the future.
