This book is conceived as to demonstrate just how deeply embedded the now rapidly growing problems destabilizing our environment are ingrained in the common functions that constitute daily life particularly related to the upper and middle class. These range from our personal life style ritual through the various societal, political, business and other infrastructure that ticks and tocks relentlessly in the course of a typical day worldwide. It is important to stress that this book will likely annoy a large variety of sections of our society and it was designed to do just that. My hope is that the annoyance will be the ‘bur under the saddle’ so to speak that will introduce into our minds the real gravity of our environmental problems. More importantly might this keep concern for the real fundamental problems of maintaining a mankind sustainable biosphere constantly in our thoughts?
