Twenty years ago, in The End of Nature, McKibben warned about global warming. Now, he argues change is needed to address a planet out of balance. 

The New York Times - Paul Greenberg

Unlike many writers on environmental cataclysm, McKibben is actually a writer, and a very good one at that. He is smart enough to know that the reader needs a dark chuckle of a bone thrown at him now and then to keep plowing through the bad news…This occasional lightheartedness carries the reader through the book's thesis and antithesis sections, delivering him, albeit a bit dispirited, to the synthesis part explaining how we might endure life on Eaarth.
