Book editor and Yale professor Daniel Esty's new book "A Better Planet: 40 Big Ideas For A Sustainable Future" contains practical, bi-partisan ideas.

SEATTLE — Editor Daniel Esty is Professor Environmental Law at the Yale School of Forestry and served in leadership roles at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  His new book "A Better Planet: Forty Big Ideas for a Sustainable Future" is a collection of 40 essays with calls to action from the world's leading thinkers on the environment and sustainability. The book's ideas are bi-partisan and practical. 

ABOUT THE BOOK: "Sustainability has emerged as one of the most urgent challenges of the 21st century. And given the complexity, severity, and scale of the numerous environmental crises we face – from climate change and water scarcity to the deforested and burning Amazon – many feel anxious, helpless, and desperate for ideas about what to do. This is precisely the mission of A BETTER PLANET: Forty Big Ideas for a Sustainable Future." Yale University Press.
