Making the Most of the Anthropocene : Facing the Future

- +

More than 60 years after Klaatu’s warning in the movie The Day the World Stood Still (1951) humans are still screwing things up. He offers some inescapable logic: we humans mess up things that are within our reach, like the Earth’s biosphere and climate; ergo, we will mess up the biosphere and climate. The notion that the planet’s surface is sufficiently within our grasp and that we are the dominant force in shaping it now has a name: the Anthropocene. Theoretical physicist Denny presents the science that goes with this new geologic age in his new and very accessible book without graphs or figures. His book targets intelligent non-specialists interested in environmental matters and the world that their grandchildren will inherit by taking a peek into their future.
