Deep Future: The Next 100,000 Years Of Life On Earth

by Phd Curt Stager

HarperCollins Publishers Ltd | September 23, 2013 | Hardcover

Not yet rated | write a review
In this major new book, paleoclimatologist Curt Stager shows how what we do to the environment in the next 100 years will affect not just the next few centuries but the next 100,000 years of human existence. Most of us have accepted that our planet is warming and that humans have played the key role in causing climate change. Yet few of us realize the magnitude of what''s happened. In Deep Future, Curt Stager draws on the planet''s geological history to provide a view of where we may be headed longterm. On the bright side, we have already put off the next Ice Age. But whether we will barrel ahead on a polluting path to a totally ice-free Arctic, miles of submerged coasts, or an acidified ocean still remains to be decided. And that decision is ours to make. There has been much written about global warming and climate change, but no other book offers the far-reaching perspective that Curt Stager gives us here. Deep Future adds a new dimension to the debate-one that will change how we think about what we''re doing to our planet.
