About this book

Shows how to make global environmental problems more tangible, so that they become an integral part of everyday awareness. Interweaving global change science, personal narrative, and commentary on a wide range of scientific and literary works, the volume explores both the ecological and existential aspects of urgent issues such as the loss of biodiversity and global climate change.

Bringing the Biosphere Home is eloquent, passionate, richly allusive, and original. - John C. Elder, Stewart Professor of English and Environmental Studies, Middlebury College, author of Reading the Mountains of Home
