Can man accept his limitations?

Can man accept his limitations?


G. Boeuf, J. Toussaint, B. Swynghedauw, S. Royal

Edition 2017

The effects of climate change are juxtaposed with the direct damage to the environment, for all living species. Are we going to be able to react in time? In the continuity of the work "Can man adapt to himself?", the most renowned French scientific experts give their opinions on our adaptation capacities and limitations in relation to current and future global changes. Among the main resistance factors, biological factors are considered in the same light as demographic, economic, social and psychological conditions. The positioning of the human species in its ecosystems is the question raised.
