“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.
