              A powerful call to arms from one of the world?s most eminent environmentalists. Thirty years ago, environmentalist Bill McKibben?s bestselling The End of Nature - now regarded as a classic - was the first book to alert us to global warming. Now, in Falter, he suggests that the hu...man race may have played itself out. Climate change, robotics and artificial intelligence may spell the end of humanity as we know it. Unless we act now. Falter tells the story of these converging trends and of the ideological fervour that keeps us from bringing them under control. Drawing on McKibben?s experience in building 350.org, the first global citizens movement to combat climate change, it offers some possible ways out of the trap. We?re at a bleak moment in human history, and we must confront the reality or watch the civilisation our forebears built slip away. This is a timely, sobering and inspiring rallying cry to save not only our planet but also our humanity. 'McKibben is the world?s best green journalist.?-Time 'The most effective environmental activist of our age. Anyone interested in making a difference can learn from him.?-Tim Flannery

              Scientists may soon reprogramme a human egg or sperm cell, make a change in the genetic instructions carried by that cell, a change that can be passed on down into eternity. The author asks should this happen? He argues that genetic engineering and the technologies that lie beyon...d it can launch us free of our past, of our humanity, of meaning.

              In The End of Nature, Bill McKibben offered one of the earliest warnings about global warming. Those warnings went mostly unheeded; now, he argues, we need to acknowledge that we've waited too long, and that massive change is already underway. In Eaarth, he surveys the changes al...ready taking place and considers what they will mean for our future.
