CARBON IS LIFE is the must-read book for everyone concerned with the environment and the wonderful creatures who share it with us. The writer, a trained scientist, shows why carbon dioxide, far from being "pollution", is actually the essential basis of life on Earth. The book is written for the intelligent lay reader. It shows, with reference to thousands of peer-reviewed scientific experiments, how more carbon dioxide in the air will feed hundreds of millions of humans and untold numbers of wildlife. This means that, as a society, we are currently setting up taxes on carbon that will force us to do exactly the opposite of what is needed to help the planet and ourselves. These are huge and vitally important claims, the truth of which would require us to completely reverse course on all our 'climate change' policies. Accordingly, Carbon Is Life sets out the case in a clear and logical way so that the reader can verify the facts for him- or herself. But as important as the hard facts is the puzzle of how we could all come to believe the precise opposite of the truth? To gain some insight into this, the author explores our situation as members of a unique technological species, and our exile from the natural world that followed from our technological mastery, and which is portrayed symbolically in the story of the Garden of Eden. The book ends with some suggestions from the author about our future and our choices as the "thinking, tool-making, language-using, record-keeping, technological, star-gazing, story-telling, civilisation-building species that nature made us."
