Here on Earth: An argument for hope by Tim Flannery

by
February 2011, no. 328

Tim Flannery’s books are not known for their uplifting qualities. The Future Eaters (1994) and The Eternal Frontier (2001) both relate the rapid extermination of hapless (yet presumably delicious) megafauna by the human inhabitants of the Australian and North American land masses, while The Weather Makers (2005) grimly catalogues modern humans’ catastrophic effects on Earth’s climate.
