Several environmental issues are increasingly taking the form of a survival or an existential crisis. It is not just nuclear weapons, but other weapons of mass destruction and the fast-emerging military use of robots/artificial intelligence that pose a threat. The main focus of this book is on these survival threats planet Earth is facing. It emphasises the need for timely solutions before civilisation spins into a crisis from which it cannot recover. The book discusses how these survival issues need to be resolved within a framework of democracy, peace and justice in a fair and equitable manner for all - man, animal, plants, water and air, all an interlinked integral part of life on Earth. Big changes in global governance capable of resolving these issues are needed before it is too late. Planet in Peril is a wake-up call for us to set out our priorities and promote people’s movements as the steering wheel for positive change - the only way to save our civilisation.
