Elizabeth Kolbert has become one of the most important writers on the environment. Now she investigates the immense challenges humanity faces as we scramble to reverse, in a matter of decades, the effects we've had on the atmosphere, the oceans, the world's forests and rivers - on the very topography of the globe. In her trademark persuasive and darkly comic prose, Kolbert introduces myriad innovations that offer ways to avert disaster - or may produce new disasters, ones that haven't been and perhaps cannot be anticipated.
