Faced with the unprecedented threat of climate change, the contemporary world has turned to a solution that is all too prosaic-consumerism. The answer, we are told, is to go green, to buy organic food or even a new clean car. In a follow-up to her bestselling and acclaimed book, "Gone Tomorrow: The Hidden Life of Garbage", Heather Rogers travels from Paraguay to Indonesia, via the Hudson Valley, Detroit and London, to explore the rapid expansion of environmental production and consumption. We are, Rogers argues, coming to rely on consumerism as the solution to the very problems it has helped to cause. "Green Gone Wrong" is an appeal to the reader to respond rationally to the current environmental crisis. It asks: what choices and structural forces led us to this perilous place? This book is founded on the belief that we have the capacity to find solutions that are not mere palliatives, but ways of engaging with how we live and what kind of world we want to live in.
