Book by Hill Callum


"A remarkably readable text providing a comprehensive discussion of resource supply and demand and impacts. The reader travels from the industrial revolution and on the way takes in thermodynamics, important metals and mitigation strategies. He ends at the possibility that global food, energy and material requirements might well be met through harvesting of biomass which can be considered to be truly sustainable. Highly recommended."Paul Fowler Executive Director, Wisconsin Institute for Sustainable Technology University of Wisconsin. 

"The world faces major challenges to ensure that we use our precious resources in ways that protect the future requirements of humankind and our wider ecosystems. These challenges arise from the high forward growth of the world population and rapidly increasing consumption of resources by industrialised and newly industrialised nations. Dr Hill has written an excellent book that sets a definitive context and basis for all those of us concerned with the future sustainability of our resources. The book is very well researched and presents economic and societal perspectives alongside the science required to model and understand the factors underpinning sustainable resource use. The book covers a number of key themes including thermodynamics, resources, impacts and ecologics and considers the impact and role of naturally derived materials in fulfilling future resource needs. The book is a good read, the narrative written in a style that is easy to read and digest. Overall, the book is thought provoking, informative, very well researched and presented, and provides an excellent disposition on sustainable resource use. I highly recommend it." – Dr Peter Bonfield Chief Executive, BRE.
