Our Last, Best Hope for a Future on Earth?

In his bestselling book The world without us, Alan Weisman considered what would happen if humankind suddenly vanished.  What would a planet without us be like?  How would the Earth heal if relieved of humanity’s constant pressures?  Behind that groundbreaking thought experiment was his hope that we would be inspired to find a way to add humans back to his vision of a restored healthy planet.

But with a million more of us every 4 ½ days, and our exhaust overheating the atmosphere and altering the chemistry of the oceans, prospects for a sustainable human future seem ever more in doubt.  For this long awaited follow-up book, Weisman traveled to 21 countries to ask four questions that experts agreed were probably the most important on Earth. 

Countdown reveals what may be the fastest, most assured way of returning our planet to balance. 

Alan Weisman is an award-winning journalist whose reports have appeared in Harper’s, New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, Vanity Fair, Mother Jones, Discover, and on NPR.
