As well as conducting scientific research, our members are often writing about it too, and the ASB’s treasurer is no exception. David Waltham’s new book, Lucky Planet, was published on May 1st 2014. The book discusses the long-term habitability of the Earth and whether this results from natural climate stabilizing processes or, alternatively, was the consequence of good-fortune unlikely to be frequently encountered elsewhere in the Universe.
See David talking about Lucky Planet in the video below. He will also be talking about the surprising long-term habitability of the Earth at the Wilderness Festival on August 10th 2014.
