|According to paleontologist Ward, all but one of the major extinction events in history have been brought on by climate change--the same global warming that occurs today. The author argues that events in the past can give valuable information about the future of our planet.|
From the Publisher:
Arguing that all but one of the major extinction events that have occurred on the planet have been caused by environmental factors, an examination of the ways in which elevated carbon dioxide levels and global warming compromise the earth's ability to sustain life makes cautionary recommendations for averting future disasters.
