Summary
This is an impassioned open letter to humanity as we stand at the crossroads of survival and extinction. Jahren celebrates the long history of our enterprising spirit - which has tamed wild crops, cured diseases, and sent us to the moon - but also shows how that spirit has created excesses that are quickly warming our planet to dangerous levels. In short, highly readable chapters, she takes us through the science behind the key inventions - from electric power to largescale farming and automobiles - that, even as they help us, release untenable amounts of carbon dioxide. She explains the current and projected consequences of greenhouse gases - from superstorms to rising sea levels - and the science-based tools that could help us fight back. At once an explainer on the mechanisms of warming and a capsule history of human development, The Story of More illuminates the link between our consumption habits and our endangered earth. It is the essential pocket primer on climate change that will leave an indelible impact on everyone who reads it
