Dr. David H. Grinspoon: Earth in Human Hands

Author, Dr. David Grinspoon, is a NASA Astrobiologist and renowned scientist. David brings readers an optimistic message about humanity’s future in the face of climate change in his book “Earth in Human Hands”. Without minimizing the challenges of the next century, David suggests that our present moment is not only one of peril, but also great potential. Our challenge now is to awaken to our role as a force of planetary change, and to grow into this task. We must become graceful planetary engineers, conscious shapers of our environment and caretakers of Earth’s biosphere. This is a perspective that begs us to ask not just what future do we want to avoid, but what do we seek to build?
