Overview

The Fate of Nature: Rediscovering Our Ability to Rescue the Earth by Charles Wohlforth

The Fate of Nature is a profoundly relevant call to action from journalist Charles Wohlforth, whose award-winning reportage addressed the infamous 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill. In the wake of the tragic 2010 BP disaster, Wohlforth's voice has never been more necessary. Using as a stage coastal Alaska, populated by an array of odd and inspiring characters, he presents both an insightful assessment of our present state and a hopeful vision for our planet in his "thoughtful and felicitous new book . . . an inspired view of humankind's future" (Anchorage Daily News).

The Fate of Nature examines eco-systems of the PWS in a thoughtful, poetic way. No doubt years of careful personal studies and encounters with wildlife, Native residents and scientists alike have forged this very sensitive and detailed account. Charles Wohlforth's realistic yet optimistic views of where we as a specie on Earth are headed and of where humankind personal responsibilities lie make this book compelling and a must-read as the Gulf spill unfolds before us. It gently reminded me that selfless respect, compassion for all things and a responsible caring way of living might restore health and balance not only to our societies but to the world as a whole.
