DESCRIPTION:

The biosphere is the thin shell around the surface of the planet that contains and sustains life on Earth. We will consider the history of this fragile shell including the basic outline of the evolution of life, the formation of fossil fuels, and the recent past with its cycles of ice ages. We will connect with the past to see what it can tell us about the future. We will consider questions such as, “How will the energy revolution look going forward?,” “What can we expect from the melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice fields and caps?,” and the biggie, “Will it continue to sustain life as we know it?”
