About this book

Presents testimony from some of the world's top environmental scientists who have seen firsthand the sobering effects of rapid global change: the extinction of species, worldwide damage to ecosystems, and the increasing alienation of human life from the natural world. A moving celebration of nature, and a tribute to the role of science in preserving our endangered future, this exceptional collection presents the personal and professional reflections of sixteen eminent scientists. Their views on the meaning and relevance of their work are interwoven with inspiring autobiographical accounts of how formative life experiences led to their research, conclusions, and activities. Contributors include: Lester Brown; Paul Ehrlich; John Firor; Martin Holdgate; Henry Kendall; Thomas Lovejoy; James Lovelock; Norman Myers; Max Nicholson; Elliott Norse; Ruth Patrick; Peter Raven; Joseph Rotblat; Sherwood Rowland; David Suzuki; and George M. Woodwell.
