Six degrees : our future on a hotter planet by Mark Lynas( Book )

43 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 2,327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In accessible journalistic prose, author Lynas distills what environmental scientists predict about the consequences of human pollution for the next hundred years, degree by degree. At 1 degree Celsius, most coral reefs and many mountain glaciers will be lost. A 3-degree rise would spell the collapse of the Amazon rainforest, disappearance of Greenland's ice sheet, and the creation of deserts across the Midwestern United States and southern Africa. A 6-degree increase would eliminate most life on Earth, including much of humanity. Based on authoritative scientific articles, the latest computer models, and information about past warm events in Earth history, this promises to be an eye-opening warning that humanity will ignore at its peril.--From publisher description

Nuclear 2.0 : why a green future needs nuclear power by Mark Lynas( )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By making use of the latest in world energy statistics, author Mark Lynas shows that with wind and solar still at only about one percent of global primary energy, looking to renewable energy as a solution to deliver all the world's power is a dangerously delusional concept. Moreover, with no possibility reducing the world's energy usage--when the developing world is fast extricating itself from poverty and adding the equivalent of a new Brazil to the global electricity consumption each year--additional solutions are needed. This book then details how the antinuclear movement of the 1970s and 1980s succeeded only in making the world more dependent on fossil fuels. Instead of making the same mistake again, this book shows how all those who want to see a low-carbon future need to join forces by backing an ambitious proposal for a combined investment in wind, solar, and nuclear power
The god species : saving the planet in the age of humans by Mark Lynas( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lynas argues that we can sustain a world of nine billion at higher living standards than today, but only if we take a more scientific approach to recognizing the real ecological limits of Earth. And that means taking a clear-eyed, rational look at a host of issues such as organic farming, genetically engineered crops, and nuclear power
Seeds of science : how we got it so wrong on GMOs by Mark Lynas( Book )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mark Lynas was one of the original GM field wreckers. Back in the 1990s--working undercover with his colleagues in the environmental movement--he would descend on trial sites of genetically modified crops at night and hack them to pieces. Two decades later, most people around the world--from New York to China--still think that 'GMO' foods are bad for their health or likely to damage the environment. But Mark has changed his mind. This book explains why. In 2013, in a world-famous recantation speech, Mark apologised for having destroyed GM crops. He spent the subsequent years touring Africa and Asia, and working with plant scientists who are using this technology to help smallholder farmers in developing countries cope better with pests, diseases and droughts. This book lifts the lid on the anti-GMO craze and shows how science was left by the wayside as a wave of public hysteria swept the world. Mark takes us back to the origins of the technology and introduces the scientific pioneers who invented it. He explains what led him to question his earlier assumptions about GM food, and talks to both sides of this fractious debate to see what still motivates worldwide opposition today. In the process he asks--and answers--the killer question: how did we all get it so wrong on GMOs?"--Dust jacket
