Earth in Human Hands, by David Grinspoon, is up next for the SAGANet Book Club. We'll have a reading schedule together pretty soon!
Here are a couple of comments on the book from David Brin and Bill Nye:
"In a moving, personal journey, Grinspoon takes the reader from molten, planetary origins, past current crises like climate change, toward a destiny that our children may yet forge, standing on our shoulders."
—David Brin, New York Times Bestselling Author of Earth and Existence
"In his wonderful writing style, Dr. Grinspoon spells it out: A single species is inducing more profound changes to our planet than any other organism in geologic history. It’s us. If you have family and friends here on Earth, read this book. The Earth is in our hands."
—Bill Nye, New York Times Bestselling Author of Unstoppable: Harnessing Science To Change The World
I think we'll skip today's meeting and then try to catch up with everyone in the coming week. I noticed it was just you and I last Sunday and then no one joined me on Wednesday, so I figured maybe some people need to catch up with the reading. We'll aim for meetings on Wednesday and Sunday in the coming week to chat about Chapter 4!
An excellent consideration of the Kardashev Scale, since that came up in today's convo: https://futurism.com/the-kardashev-scale-type-i-ii-iii-iv-v-civiliz...
Just saw this extended classic from Star Talk: All Stars that features Earth in Human Hands!
Hello everyone! It has been a while I have posted anything. I was moving to a new place and was unable to get proper network. Are you all planning for a new book to read?
Thanks for Reading.
Hi Suraj! No worries. I've had my hands full lately as I've been trying to wrap up my dissertation. It was just accepted by the graduate school yesterday (making it official that I have finished my PhD). We can definitely look to reading another book now.
Congratulations Graham!! Very happy to know that. Sure, Lets start a bew book someday.
Hello people!. Its been a long time coming to this page. I was very busy in the course work at my college. Can we start reading a new book? Good news is that have invited some of my friends to this club and I have joined an astronomy club at my college where we do night sky sessions and hold lot of fun events.
That's awesome Suraj! I would be into the idea of starting another book soon. I've been a bit behind in keeping up with some obligations. Beyond SAGANet, I'm also now work as the Director of Communications and Marketing for Blue Marble Space. It's a lot of fun!
