The Anthropocene: The Human Era and How It Shapes Our Future by Christian Schwägerl

For more than two decades, award-winning science and environmental journalist, Christian Schwagerl has researched how humans, nature, and technology interact. Schwagerl is inspired by the idea of Nobel Prize-winning chemist Paul Crutzen who argued that we are living in a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene, a time in which human dominance of Earth's biological, chemical and geological processes is an undeniable reality, presenting us with a new role as planetary stewards. But what does it mean to live in the Anthropocene? Schwagerl investigates this question by visiting some of the last pristine places on Earth, exploring rising megacities and witnessing the devastation of forests and coral reefs. Melding rigorous scientific training with his experience as a journalist, he has covered high-profile political and environmental conferences, and interviewed key figures influencing the course of our future. The result is this thoroughly researched, comprehensive overview of our planetary situation and outlook. Schwagerl presents tangible solutions to our global crises, and shares his vision of a world that balances ecological sustainability, economic prosperity, political justice and cultural vibrancy.
