Summary
It is impossible to grasp the whole planet or integrate all the descriptions of it. But because we live here, we have to try. This is not just an artistic compulsion or an existential yearning, still less an academic exercise. It is a survival issue. This is the only planet we have. We are stuck here, and we do not own the place-it would be the height of arrogance to assume that we do. We are tenants here, not owners, but we are tenants with hope for a long-term tenancy. We want to extend our lease just as far as we can. This book provides a sweeping, accessible, and deeply informed guide to the home we all share, showing us how we might best preserve the Earth's livability for ourselves and future generations
