Last year awareness about global warming reached a tipping point Now one of the most dynamic writers and one of the most respected scientists in the field of climate change offer the first concise guide to both the problems and the solutions Guiding us past a blizzard of information and misinformation Gabrielle Walker and Sir David King explain the science of warming the most cutting edge technological solutions from small to large and the national and international politics that will affect our efforts br br While there have been many other books about the problem of global warming none has addressed what we can and should do about it so clearly and persuasively with no spin no agenda and no exaggeration Neither Walker nor King is an activist or politician and theirs is not a generic green call to arms Instead they propose specific ideas to fix a very specific problem Most important they offer hope This is a serious issue perhaps the most serious that humanity has ever faced But we can still do something about it And they ll show us how, No description available, Did the Earth once undergo a super ice age one that froze the entire planet from the poles to the equator In b Snowball Earth b gifted writer Gabrielle Walker has crafted an intriguing global adventure story following maverick scientist Paul Hoffman s quest to prove a theory so audacious and profound that it is shaking the world of earth sciences to its core br br In lyrical prose that brings each remote and alluring locale vividly to life Walker takes us on a thrilling natural history expedition to witness firsthand the supporting evidence Hoffman has pieced together That evidence he argues shows that million years ago the Earth did indeed freeze over completely becoming a giant snowball in the worst climatic catastrophe in history Even more startling is his assertion that instead of ending life on Earth this global deep freeze was the trigger for the Cambrian Explosion the hitherto unexplained moment in geological time when a glorious profusion of complex life forms first emerged from the primordial ooze br br In a story full of intellectual intrigue we follow the irascible but brilliant Hoffman and a supporting cast of intrepid geologists as they scour the planet uncovering clue after surprising clue We travel to a primeval lagoon at Shark Bay in western Australia where dolphins cavort with swimmers every morning at seven and living rocks sprout out of the water like broccoli heads to the desolate and forbidding ice fields of a tiny Arctic archipelago seven hundred miles north of Norway to the surprising fossil beds that decorate Newfoundland s foggy and windswept coastline and on to the superheated salt pans of California s Death Valley br br Through the contours of these rich and varied landscapes Walker teaches us to read the traces of geological time with expert eyes and we marvel at the stunning feats of resilience and renewal our remarkable planet is capable of b Snowball Earth b is science writing at its most gripping and enlightening, No description available
