Global Planet Authority by Angus Forbes publishes today in the UK. The founder of the Eden Project, Sir Tim Smit, gave advanced praise of the book: “Every so often an idea comes along that shakes the very foundations of your thinking. A passionate restatement of Primo Levi’s clarion call. If not us, who? If not now, when? A powerful and urgent opportunity for humanity – utterly compelling.”
About Global Planet Authority
Our most valuable global asset, the biosphere, is being destroyed by all eight billion of us. We are failing to protect a global asset that knows no national boundaries because we don’t have a specialized global protectorate whose sole job is to deliver biophysical integrity, now and for the ultra-long term. By nature of the asset being global, the authority must have sufficient power over all human organizational forms, including the nation-state and you and me.
Packed full of facts, figures and statistics, Global Planet Authority shows how we as global citizens can come together today to vote into existence our first global authority. It will be our first act of global self-determination, and there is no one’s permission to seek except our own. Because we know the problem and we are now connected, we are already 80% of the way to creating this vital authority. Now it is time to take the last step. Humanity will thank us… forever.
