Here On Earth: An Argument for Hope
Text Publishing Company, 27. sep. 2010 - 352 sider
Tim Flannery's first major book since The Weather Makers charts the history of life on our planet. Here on Earth, which draws its points of departure from Darwin and Wallace, Lovelock and Dawkins, is an extraordinary exploration of evolution and sustainability.
Our success as a species has had disastrous effects on many of the Earth's ecosystems and could lead to our downfall. But equally, Flannery argues, we are now equipped as never before to explore our true relationship with the planet on which our biological, economic and cultural futures depend. Here on Earth is not just a dazzling account of life on our planet. It will change the way you live.
'A letter from perhaps the world's most thoughtful, and certainly most eloquent, environmental scientist on how we as a species might survive as chief stewards of planet Earth...a must for optimists and pessimists alike.' New Scientist
