Great Transition: Acknowledgements

This content is not assigned to a topic

We are grateful to each of our Global Scenario Group colleagues who joined us over the years in an exhilarating exploration of the global past, present and future—Michael Chadwick, Khaled Mohammed Fahmy, Tibor Farago, Nadezhda Gaponenko, Gordon Goodman, Lailai Li, Roger Kasperson, Sam Moyo, Madiodio Niasse, H.W.O. Okoth-Ogendo, Atiq Rahman, Setijati Sastrapradja, Katsuo Seiki, Nicholas Sonntag and Veerle Vandeweerd. This essay is a manifestation of that joint effort. We thank the Stockholm Environment Institute, Rockefeller Foundation, the Nippon Foundation, and the United Nations Environment Programme for major funding for GSG activities over the years, and Steven Rockefeller for both inspiration and a grant for the early stages of writing. We are deeply indebted to Eric Kemp-Benedict for invaluable contributions to the research and modeling, Faye Camardo and Pamela Pezzati for rigorous editing and David McAnulty for publication assistance. We appreciate the comments of the many reviewers of early versions of the manuscript, and particularly wish to thank Bert Bolin, Michael Chadwick, David Fromkin, Nadezhda Gaponenko, Gordon Goodman, Roger Kasperson, Lailai Li, Madiodio Niasse, Gus Speth and Philip Sutton. We hope the product honors the many wellsprings of collective insight that flowed into it. But any remaining errors of fact, lapses in judgment and failures of imagination are the responsibility of the authors alone.
