Clear rating

Plan B 2.0, the second in Brown’s Plan B series, looks into green development and the ecological destruction across the globe caused by rapid industrialization and the “throwaway economy,” consisting of oil and water shortages, pollution and deforestation. Brown proposes solutions involving sustainable agriculture, wildlife and resource conservation, renewable energy and recycling, among other things. Brown’s solution also includes a $161 billion yearly budget and environmental taxes to make the economy more eco-friendly.
Reviewers have suggested that while Brown’s propositions are practical and his statistics “intriguing,” they are presented in a somewhat disorganized manner, and lack the “meticulous” cost-benefit analysis required for the subject. However, it is widely considered a great launchpad for discussion on an environmentally friendly economy.
