Summary
  • "Wake up! Act! A call to address global climate change from two masters of science fiction. Isaac Asimov and Frederik Pohl are among the greatest science fiction writers who ever lived. Their talent for envisioning the future, and their clarity in writing about that future, made their novels enduring classics. In Our angry Earth, they applied those skills to a careful survey of the state of Planet Earth and the probable effect of our carbon-burning culture on it. Their cleared-eyed call to action is as fresh and timely as it was twenty-five years ago, when this book was published. The new introduction and afterword by Kim Stanley Robinson bring the book completely up to date. Robinson is one of the greatest modern SF writers, author of the bestselling Mars trilogy, the New York Times bestselling 2312, and the current climate change-focused bestseller New York 2140. He has written fiction and nonfiction about climate change for the past thirty years. In 2008, Time named Robinson a "Hero of the Environment."--Page 4 of cover
  • Two great SF authors presented a factual book on humans changes made to the environment and the disastrous effects of these changes in 1991. In 1992, Pohl updated it with how little has been done and how much more needs to begin before it is too late. 25 years later, this is the reissue of that book with a new introduction and afterword by Kim Stanley Robinson calling to the next generation to continue the battle for everyone's future on this planet
