Productbeschrijving

Productbeschrijving

“A fun read!” - ERIK ASPHAUG, University of Arizona, author of Impact Craters in the Solar System.

“I highly recommend this engaging book…” – MICHAEL E. MANN, Penn State University, author of The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars.

Past climate changes on Earth were sometimes catastrophic, causing mass extinctions. The more that science learns from those events, the more we find that modern climate change resembles them. We seem to be engineering change to our planet potentially as destructive as any in the past.

Your Life as Planet Earth takes readers on a lighthearted journey through the twists and setbacks of our planet’s evolution, using the metaphor of a human life to make the story of our world and its climate easily relatable. It shows how the strands of climate, evolution, tectonics and cosmic events tangled through time to drive changes in life and climate to today.

We can’t fully grasp how we came to be without understanding the climate shifts and rocky upheavals that led to us. We can’t make sense of our future until we make sense of our past.

5.0 van 5 sterren Our lives do indeed mirror that of Earth's, and this book is a great introduction that that life. 29 december 2015

As a geologist, I supremely admire Howard Lee's ability to, in as simple a way as is possible, describe the Earth's vastly long history in a way that makes sense to the layperson. This book reminds me of "The Dancing Wu Li Masters," inasmuch as Howard skips the dry and droll scholastic descriptions of Earth's past history by way of graphs, maths, and deep academic work (though his book is clearly supported by the same!), but rather focuses on representing the Earth's 4.5 billion-year life as that of a 100-year human lifetime, and weaves a tale that graphically shows how the Earth ha changed so very fundamentally during its past.

Most importantly, Howard's tale give the lie to the current state of affairs, as put forth by the fossil fuel industry, that their products are not responsible for the current warming the planet is experiencing. Howard's friendly and warm style is a wonderfully enticing way to get people's attention about the current climatic crisis we all face.

Along with the recent revelations that Exxon's own scientists knew exactly the effect fossil fuels were having on the biosphere, 20+ years ago, and the ever-increasing rate of extreme weather events the world is seeing, make this an important read.
