Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet
PRAISE FOR EAARTH With clarity, eloquence, deep knowledge and even deeper compassion for both planet and people, Bill McKibben guides us to the brink of a new, uncharted era. This monumental book, probably his greatest, may restore your faith in the future, with us in it. Alan Weisman, author of The World Without Us What I have to say about this book is very simple: Read it, please. Straight through to the end. Whatever else you were planning to do next, nothing could be more important. Barbara Kingsolver, author of Animal, Vegetable, Miracle Bill McKibben foresaw the end of nature very early on, and in this new book he blazes a path to help preserve nature's greatest treasures. James E. Hansen, director, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies Bill McKibben is the most effective environmental activist of our age. Anyone interested in making a difference to our world can learn from him. Tim Flannery, author of The Weather Makers and The Eternal Frontier The terrifying premise with which this book begins is that we have, as in the old science fiction films and tales of half a century ago, landed on a harsh and unpredictable planet, all six billion of us. Climate change is already here, but Bill McKibben doesn t stop with the bad news. He tours the best responses that are also already here, and these visions of a practical scientific solution are also sketches of a better, richer, more democratic civil society and everyday life. Eaarth is an astonishingly important book that will knock you down and pick you up. Rebecca Solnit, author of Paradise Built in Hell and Hope in the Dark
