“Hope Jahren is the voice that science has been waiting for.” (Nature)
“A superb account of the deadly struggle between humanity and what may prove the only life-bearing planet within 10 light years, written in a brilliantly sardonic and conversational style.” (E. O. Wilson)
“Hope Jahren asks the central question of our time: how can we learn to live on a finite planet? The Story of More is thoughtful, informative, and - above all - essential.” (Elizabeth Kolbert, author of The Sixth Extinction)
Hope Jahren is an award-winning scientist, a brilliant writer, a passionate teacher, and one of the seven billion people with whom we share this earth. In The Story of More, she illuminates the link between human habits and our imperiled planet. In concise, highly understandable chapters, she takes us through the science behind the key inventions - from electric power to large-scale farming to automobiles - that, even as they help us, release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere like never before. She explains the current and projected consequences of global warming - from superstorms to rising sea levels - and the actions that we all can take to fight back.
At once an explainer on the mechanisms of global change and a lively, personal narrative given to us in Jahren’s inimitable voice, The Story of More is the essential pocket primer on climate change that will leave an indelible impact on everyone who reads it.

Turns everything into Wonderful story
And although authors narrating their own books usually don't do well, she does fabulous and is so pleasant to listen which helps given the gloom of what's happening. (should consider narrating more!)

beautifully written, with reverence for nature as reported by a scientist and poet. Love this book, especially this audio version.
