Diane Ackerman always finds a way to turn science into poetry, and this book is no exception. With a Sagan-like lens that can zoom out to space, back in time, and down to the microscopic, she analyzes what drastic changes humans have brought to the earth in our relatively short time here, beating the environmentalism drum but also offering offbeat explorations, beautifully poetic insights, and more hope and respect for the ingenuity of humans than many other doomsayer conservationists. An entertaining and inspiring read.
