Under a White Sky: The Future of Nature by Elizabeth Kolbert
Pulitzer winner Elizabeth Kolbert (The Sixth Extinction) returns with her latest science odyssey. Under the White Sky continues Kolbert’s discussion and exploration of the changed (and changing) face of our planet, and what we might be able to do to help after centuries of destruction.
Deep into our (self-inflicted) climate crisis, the solutions aren’t necessarily clear, nor are they without their failings. But, there is an immense (and hopeful) amount of invention and experimentation going on in the name of protecting our natural habitat. What is needed is a monumental change, wherein we start thinking and experimenting like crazy on a global level; from backyard experimentation to corporate scientific endeavors. Our outcome depends on aspiring to change, re-adjust and redirect the negative alterations we have caused already, alterations that have degraded our planet and climate to a point of imminent collapse.
