A travelogue with that good human epoch in mind, a trip around the world to meet people working out new ways for humanity to live as well as survive. . . . detail-packed.
With the historical perspective of The Song of the Dodo and the urgency of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, this book chronicles a disparate band of unlikely heroes: an effervescent mad scientist who would fertilize the seas; a pigeon obsessive bent on bringing back the extinct; a low-level government functionary in China doing his best to clean up his city, and more. These scientists, billionaires, and ordinary people are all working toward saving the best home humanity is ever likely to have.
