by Tim Flannery - £12.99 Penguin Books Ltd (2007)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780141026275 | ISBN 10: 0141026278
Acclaimed naturalist, conservationist, philosopher and adventurer Tim Flannery has explored every corner of the globe - from the tropical heat of the rainforests to the exquisite beauty of Australia's coral reefs, from the snows of Kilimanjaro to the melting ice sheets of the Antarctic - to discover how the earth's climate has changed over millennia, and how we are now changing it ourselves.
Whether looking at the demise of the polar bear or the warming of the oceans, this moving and inspiring book shows how the slightest imbalance now has the power to shape our future and that of the entire world - and what we can do about it.
"A hymn to life... Flannery's climatic epic on the erosion of life on Earth is an epitaph and a cause for hope."
