  • QuakelandQuakeland Miles, Kathryn E P Dutton 出版 2017/8/29出版

    A journey around the United States in search of the truth about the threat of earthquakes leads to spine-tingling discoveries, unnerving experts, and ultimately the kind of preparations that will actually help guide us through disasters. It's a road trip full of surprises.Earthquakes. You need to worry about themnly if you're in San Francisco, right? Wrong. We have been making enormous changes to subterranean America, and Mother Earth, as always, has been making some of her own. . . . The consequences for our real estate, our civil engineering, and our communities will be huge because they will include earthquakes most of us do not expect and cannot imaginet least not without reading Quakeland. Kathryn Miles descends into mines in the Northwest, visits the South to see what the Army Corps of Engineers in Memphis is learning about the next major US quake, uncovers the consequences of an earthquake in the Northeast rupturing pipes underneath a nuclear power plant, and interviews the people around the country who are addressing this rising threat. She maps out what will happen and what we can do about it. ?br> As Miles relates, the era of human-induced earthquakes began in 1962 in Colorado after millions of gallons of chemical weapon waste was pumped into an underground dump in the Rockies. More than 1,500 quakes over the following seven years resulted. The Department of Energy plans to dump spent nuclear rods in the same way. Evidence of fracking's seismological impact continues to mount. . . . Humans as well as fault lines built our unstable ground. ?br> What will happen when Memphis goes offline as a result of an earthquake along the unstable Reelfoot Fault and takes FedEx and its two-million-package-a-day business with it??FEMA has estimated that a modest 7.0 magnitude quake (twenty of these happen per year around the world) along the Wasatchault under Salt Lake City would put a $33 billion dent in our economy. The Ramapo Fault runs beneath both the Apollo Theater in Harlem and the Indian Point nuclear reactor.?When the Fukushima reactor melted down, tens of thousands were displaced. If Indian Point blows, ten million people will be displaced. How would that evacuation even begin?

  • Climate of HopeClimate of Hope Bloomberg, Michael R. Baker & Taylor Books 出版 2017/4/18出版

    In 2006, the documentary An Inconvenient Truth set off a heated political debate when it threatened that inaction on climate change would lead to a dark and frightening future by 2016.Well, that ten year window has closednd we have neither resolved the threats to our climate, nor gone past the point of no return. To Mayor Bloomberg and Carl Pope, it's clear that to treat climate change as either a lost cause or a non-issue is the wrong approach. Global leaders are stymied by the enormity of the doom-and-gloom scenarios. So what happens when you tell leaders that they can definitelyight now, this yeareduce the number of children who have asthma attacks, save thousands of Americans from dying of respiratory disease, cut energy bills, increase the security of our energy supply, make it easier for everyone to get around town, increase the number of jobs in their communityll while increasing the long-term stability of the global climate? That is actionable. That future is within our grasp.The changing climate should be seen as a series of discreet, manageable problems that should be attacked from all angles, each with a solution that can make our society healthier and our economy stronger. It time for a new type of conversation about climate change, one that mayors, business leaders, and citizens have already begun to lead. By lowering the temperature of the debate, we can raise the bar for what we can accomplish. Cooler heads can produce a cooler world.Micheal Bloomberg and Carl Pope have come together to bring their vision to the leaders of the world. They don agree on every pointhat Californian and New Yorker do?ut they share a strong sense of responsibility for taking on this fight, and a deep sense of optimism that we can win it.

  • TidesTides White, Jonathan Trinity Univ Pr 出版 2017/2/14出版

    In Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean, writer, sailor, educator, and marine conservationist Jonathan White takes readers on a journey spanning the globe as he examines the many dimensions of tides, the science behind them, and how they influence the cultures of the people who live by their rhythms. Traveling to the northern reaches of the Arctic to shimmy down a hole in the ice with an Inuit elder to hunt for blue mussels in the dark cavities below; racing the Silver Dragon, a twenty-five-foot tidal bore that crashes up the Qiantang River in China; or shadowing the Mavericks competition in California where surfers paddle into deadly waves sixty feet high, White writes about the history and majesty of our planet most remarkable tidal phenomenons.On the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama, White explores how this small island archipelago confronts sea level rise. He examines how Venice, Italy, has been making extraordinary preparations for the coming effects of climate change. And he shows how, in this age of drastic global climate shifts, tides offer critical insight into the planet future.With a foreword by Peter Matthiessen, Tides combines lyrical prose, colorful adventure travel narrative, and provocative scientific analysis of this elemental yet mysterious paradox that keeps the earth waters in constant motion. Photographs of White travels, scientific figures, line drawings, and an eight-page color insert showing tidal changes enhance this engaging and expert tour of the tides.

  • The Hidden Life of TreesThe Hidden Life of Trees Wohlleben, Peter Greystone Books 出版 2016/9/13出版

    In The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben shares his deep love of woods and forests and explains the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in the woodland and the amazing scientific processes behind the wonders of which we are blissfully unaware. Much like human families, tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, and support them as they grow, sharing nutrients with those who are sick or struggling and creating an ecosystem that mitigates the impact of extremes of heat and cold for the whole group. As a result of such interactions, trees in a family or community are protected and can live to be very old. In contrast, solitary trees, like street kids, have a tough time of it and in most cases die much earlier than those in a group.Drawing on groundbreaking new discoveries, Wohlleben presents the science behind the secret and previously unknown life of trees and their communication abilities; he describes how these discoveries have informed his own practices in the forest around him. As he says, a happy forest is a healthy forest, and he believes that eco-friendly practices not only are economically sustainable but also benefit the health of our planet and the mental and physical health of all who live on Earth.

  • The Ends of the WorldThe Ends of the World Brannen, Peter Ecco Pr 出版 2017/6/13出版

    Our world has ended five times: it has been broiled, frozen, poison-gassed, smothered, and pelted by asteroids. In The Ends of the World, Peter Brannen dives into deep time, exploring Earth past dead ends, and in the process, offers us a glimpse of our possible future.Many scientists now believe that the climate shifts of the twenty-first century have analogs in these five extinctions. Using the visible clues these devastations have left behind in the fossil record, The Ends of the World takes us inside cenes of the crime,?from South Africa to the New York Palisades, to tell the story of each extinction. Brannen examines the fossil recordhich is rife with creatures like dragonflies the size of sea gulls and guillotine-mouthed fishnd introduces us to the researchers on the front lines who, using the forensic tools of modern science, are piecing together what really happened at the crime scenes of the Earth biggest whodunits.Part road trip, part history, and part cautionary tale, The Ends of the World takes us on a tour of the ways that our planet has clawed itself back from the grave, and casts our future in a completely new light.

  • The Archipelago of HopeThe Archipelago of Hope Raygorodetsky, Gleb Pegasus Books 出版 2017/11/7出版

    One cannot turn on the news today without a report on an extreme weather event or the latest update on Antarctica. But while our politicians argue, the truth is that climate change is already here. Nobody knows this better than Indigenous peoples who, having developed an intimate relationship with ecosystems over generations, have observed these changes for decades. For them, climate change is not an abstract concept or policy issue, but the reality of daily life.After two decades of working with indigenous communities, Gleb Raygorodetsky shows how these communities are actually islands of biological and cultural diversity in the ever-rising sea of development and urbanization. They are an rchipelago of hope?as we enter the Anthropocene, for here lies humankind best chance to remember our roots and how to take care of the Earth. These communities are implementing creative solutions to meet these modern challenges. Solutions that are relevant to the rest of us.We meet the Skolt Sami of Finland, the Nenets and Altai of Russia, the Sapara of Ecuador, the Karen of Myanmar, and the Tla-o-qui-aht of Canada. Intimate portraits of these men and women, youth and elders, emerge against the backdrop of their traditional practices on land and water. Though there are brutal realties?pollution, corruption, forced assimilationaygorodetsky's prose resonates with the positive, the adaptive, the spiritualnd hope.
