Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet by Bill McKibben
Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet

thomcat, January 28, 2011

Saw this book at Powells, and read it. Out of 100 books I finished in 2010, this was easily the best.

The start of this book was like being forced to move out of your home due to foreclosure. Depressing, and you just know some of that was your own fault. Then the book gets better.

I really enjoyed the history behind the initial carbon dioxide target of 550 ppm and the solid science behind the newest target of 350 ppm. For nearly all of human history, we were at 275 ppm, and we won't be there again in my lifetime - or yours. Or your kids, or grand kids.
