Inhaltsangabe: One Man's Planet is one slightly off-centered geologist's introduction to how politics, pop-culture and the earth sciences intertwine in our daily lives. It is a humorous look at a myriad of issues that grace the news and drive political debates from local councils to international discourse. One Man's Planet picks apart the rhetoric on all sides of these debates to look at how the science describes the issue, often to the nakedness of the opposing parties. Tackling topics like climate, energy, water, and hazards, Stephen Testa channels Beanie Babies, Mad Max, and Shakespeare among others to examine the latest scientific understanding of these issues. He deftly weaves all this into a very informative and entertaining tapestry on the planet today and the planet's tomorrow. Come tour the Earth with Testa as your guide!
