Description

 The book considers environmental consequences for consumption and their impact on health and safety in a world of increasing consumption where stress on a number of environmental systems is growing. This book analyses the direct consequences of consumption, in addition to the environmental side effects of companies, commerce, and financiers who provide goods for consumption and trading. It places the primary responsibility for global environmental damages on resource holders and the powerful, while simultaneously charging consumers with infinitesimal responsibility for these damages. The author also confirms that economic and political activity transfers the costs of consuming these goods, as well as their side effects, to environmental organizations and distant societies at a later time.
