I purchased this book a while ago because of a renewed interest in the climate change debate. He postulates a possible cause of a Mass Extinction event roughly 250 million years ago and how its' causes might be germane to anthropogenic global warming. One fascinating facet of this book is his description of his own life experiences and insight into level of detail Scientists go into to develop their thesis/experiments to help contribute to the overall understanding of Earth's history.
"Paleontologist Peter Ward’s book on mass extinctions and climate change provides a deep-time perspective that is both sobering and necessary. Under a Green Sky puts the present within a geological context while also making the climate crisis feel even more personal and pressing...."
This is test to see if any interest can be generated on this forum.
