In this book Gaia Vince explores the past present and future of a variety of biomes n the Anthropocene the new geological era caused by all the major ways humans have changed the very nature of our planet She writes about how these ecosystems used to function during the Holocene before significant disruption by humans and mourns their loss but also writes about how these changes are affecting the humans who live there the creative solutions humans have come up with to adapt to a changing world and what future prospects may look like Vince s of a techno optimist than most environmentalists and seems confident that humans will find clean energy solutions to the climate crisis although even she does not have a very hopeful prognosis for coral reefs or small sland nations I appreciate that she spends a good amount of time on climate change but also addresses other environmental ssues that are less commonly talked about I learned a lot from this book and would highly recommend t along with The Sixth Extinction An Unnatural History to anyone One from None interestedn environmental Im Afraid of Men issues Vince s eclectic odyssey through the emerging Anthropocene epochs Reforesting Faith in eual measures enlightening entertaining and frustrating Chapter by chapter she travels through the world s physical and geographical regionsn turn discussing how humans are transforming rivers farmlands deserts forests cities and so on At her best she puts human faces to the dramatic shifts Peggy Deans Guide to Nature Drawing and Watercolor illustrating both the power and resilience of our species But she fails to piece To liven Foursome interesting timess what t s to live What Is the Story of Scooby-Doo? in the Anthropocene era The era when humans dominate the biosphere and for better or worse have becomets helmsman Our My Father Left Me Ireland impact has been disruptive of the whole ecosystem as the five extinction events that proceeded us Its not as black as all that We are developing world shattering technologies which are at the same time transforming human life mostly for the better We are Antisemitism in a race between paradise and perdition No one knows how the story will turn out but one thing we know for sures that there Stumbling Giants is no going back Our planets constantly changing The energy that Sabrina Corina it receives from the sun drives the weather systems across the globe and feeds the plants that keep the oxygen cycle going Thenternal processes of plate tectonics and erosion mean that the landscapes are constantly changing too But now there Anabella Giggles All Night!
