The God Species casts a timely and significant new vision of our connection to the planet, written by one of the world's leading science journalists. This new book represents a major game-change in our approach to the environment. Acclaimed Six Degrees author Mark Lynas takes his environmental vision - and deep research - to a new level, offering us a robust and integrated view of the environment that will ensure the sustainability of the planet. With a spirit of optimism, The God Species represents a new grand synthesis that will foster greater understanding of the Earth's finely tuned systems and, in turn, rally individuals and governments to take the necessary actions to protect them.
Mark Lynas has worked for nearly a decade as a specialist on climate change, and is author of three books on the subject: High Tide: News from a Warming World (2004), Carbon Calculator (2007), and Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet (2007). Lynas writes a fortnightly column for the New Statesman magazine, and is a regular contributor to the Guardian. He is also a Visiting Research Associate at Oxford University's School of Geography and the Environment.
