The Unnatural World

Recommendation inspired by:
How long will human impacts last? - David Biello

Why we love this book:

On the scale of the universe, humanity has only existed for the equivalent of a blink of an eye, but we’ve already left permanent marks on our home planet, and not just the ones you might expect. The Unnatural World examines those in the context of the environmental changes we’re inflicting, what the consequences of those changes will be, and how we might fix things. This book explains a lot of complex ideas in a clear, engaging way, but what I love most about it is that it’s somehow simultaneously apocalyptic and uplifting.
