HOPE JAHREN    Book Number: 89815    Product format: Paperback

Nature magazine said, 'Jahren is the voice science has been waiting for' and she is the bestselling author of Lab Girl. An award-winning geobiologist, a brilliant writer, an inspiring teacher, and one of the seven billion people with whom we share this earth, Jahren illuminates the link between human consumption habits and our imperilled planet. In short, highly readable chapters she takes us through the science behind the key inventions - from electric power to large-scale farming and automobiles that, even as they help us, release untenable amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. She explains the current and projected consequences of greenhouse gases from superstorms to rising sea levels, and the actions that all of us can take to fight back. At once an explainer on the mechanisms of global warming and a lively, personal narrative given to us in her inimitable voice, her book is the essential pocket primer on climate change that will leave an indelible impact on everyone who reads it. E. O. Wilson said 'Written in a brilliantly sardonic and conversational style.' Sections include Life, Food, Energy and Earth, illuminating subjects from population growth to melting glaciers now as we stand at the crossroads of survival and extinction. 205pp, paperback.
