Merchants of despair : radical environmentalists, criminal pseudo-scientists, and the fatal cult of antihumanism by Robert Zubrin( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There was a time when humanity looked in the mirror and saw something precious, worth protecting and fighting for--indeed, worth liberating. But now, we are beset on all sides by propaganda promoting a radically different viewpoint. According to this idea, human beings are a cancer upon the Earth, a horde of vermin whose aspirations and appetites are endangering the natural order. This is the core of antihumanism. "Merchants of Despair" traces the pedigree of this ideology and exposes its pernicious consequences in startling and horrifying detail. The book names the chief prophets and promoters of antihumanism over the last two centuries, from Thomas Malthus through Paul Ehrlich and Al Gore. It exposes the worst crimes perpetrated by the antihumanist movement, including eugenics campaigns in the United States and genocidal anti-development and population-control programs around the world. Combining riveting tales from history with powerful policy arguments, "Merchants of Despair" provides scientific refutations to all of antihumanism's major pseudo-scientific claims, including its modern tirades against nuclear power, pesticides, population growth, biotech foods, resource depletion, and industrial development

Mars on Earth : the adventures of space pioneers in the high Arctic by Robert Zubrin( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the incredible true story of a group of determined space voyagers who wouldn't wait for the space program to catch up with them. From 1999 to 2002, the stalwarts of the Mars Society began the virtual exploration of Mars through a series of unique missions. Complete with habitat modules, space suits, and next-generation exploration equipment, they lived in the most isolated spots on earth, where they replicated and studied the real-life challenges of exploring the Red Planet. Encounters with polar bears, tensions between crew members, bouts with near-disaster, and, ultimately, victory in creating an earthbound "space program" would inspire people around the world who followed the mission on the Discovery Channel and in feature articles. Leading the mission was the man known as the "Christopher Columbus of Mars," internationally renowned astronautical engineer Robert Zubrin. In Mars on Earth, Zubrin tells a tale of risk and adventure in the frozen wastes of the Arctic and Antarctic, and in the parched deserts of the American southwest and the Australian outback. Strikingly illustrated with dramatic on-site photographs and possessed of remarkable accounts of technological know-how and achievement, Mars on Earth captures the wild-eyed idealism and hardheaded practicality of the current generation of space enthusiasts

Energy victory : winning the war on terror by breaking free of oil by Robert Zubrin( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this compelling argument for a new direction in US energy policy, world-renowned engineer and best-selling author Robert Zubrin lays out a bold plan for breaking the economic stranglehold that the OPEC oil cartel has on our country and the world. Zubrin presents persuasive evidence that our decades-long relationship with OPEC has resulted in the looting of our economy, the corruption of our political system, and now the funding and protection of terrorist regimes and movements that are committed to our destruction. Debunking the false solutions and myths that have deterred us from taking necessary action, Zubrin exposes the fakery that has allowed many politicians -- including current US president George W. Bush -- to posture that they are acting to resolve this problem while actually doing nothing significant toward that goal. Zubrin's plan is straightforward and practical. He argues that if Congress passed a law requiring that all new cars sold in the USA be flex-fueled -- that is, able to run on any combination of gasoline or alcohol fuels -- this one action would destroy the monopoly that the oil cartel has maintained on the globe's transportation fuel supply, opening it up to competition from alcohol fuels produced by farmers worldwide. According to Zubrin's estimates, within three years of enactment, such a regulation would put 50 million cars on the road in the USA capable of running on high-alcohol fuels, and at least an equal number overseas

Mars direct : space exploration, the red planet, and the human future by Robert Zubrin( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The human race is at a crossroads. In the coming years, we will make decisions regarding our human spaceflight program that will lead to one of two familiar futures: the open universe of Star Trek, where we allow ourselves the opportunity to spread our wings and attempt to flourish as an interplanetary species--or the closed, dystopian, and ultimately self-destructive world of Soylent Green. If we ever hope to live in the future that is the former scenario, our first stepping stone must be a manned mission to Mars. Dr. Robert Zubrin details the challenges of a manned Earth-to-Mars mission. Challenges which, according to Zubrin, we are technologically more prepared to overcome than the obstacles of the missions to the moon of the sixties and seventies. Dr. Zubrin's relatively simple plan, called Mars Direct, could feasibly have humans on the surface of Mars within a decade. Zubrin also discusses the current predicament of NASA, the promise of privatized space flight from companies like SpaceX, and the larger implication behind the absolute necessity to open the final frontier to humanity--the human race's future as a species that takes the necessary baby steps away from the cradle that is planet Earth or, ultimately, perishes here
