On Planet Earth, mass extinction is part of the process. Two hundred and fifty million years ago, 95 percent of species perished, thanks to the emissions of megavolcanoes. Sixty five million years ago, a meteor strike killed the dinosaurs and thousands of other species. Now, thanks to climate change and other calamities, the human species might stand in comparable peril. Veteran science journalist Annalee Newitz assures us that we don't just have to sit on our hands waiting for the sixth Great Extinction; we can prepare intellectually, scientifically, and even emotionally for troubles looming in our species' future. Sound advice about threats more gripping than any thriller.
