Hacking Planet Earth: How Geoengineering Can Help Us Reimagine the Future

We rated this book:


The past has ruined our planet. Can futuristic technology fix it for the next generation? Hacking Planet Earth portrays the problems resulting from global warming as well as how technologies can fix them. It has good references at the back and is very authoritative.

The author is a journalist for major newspapers on the subjects of climate change and being prepared for it in the future. The book shows the serious problems that can and probably will occur in the future if the human race does not take precautions. Thomas Kostigen is skilled at using descriptive language to make points, and he employs a wide variety of resources.

Hacking Planet Earth describes enough technical details to be a rich resource for investigating the topic and it is also very reputable. It is technology-centered and showcases expensive solutions to global warming. A lot of the topics are very possible and sad, but as books on the subject go, this one is pretty hopeful, portraying it as a large engineering problem with a solution.

This is a genuinely good but technical book on real-world topics, futuristic technologies, and the future of our environment and humanity.
