I'm an engineer. I've always been skeptical of the magnitude of man-made global warming. A piece from NASA was enough to convince me that I was wrong - that exogenous factors are not enough to explain the increasing rate of change in the climate. That's when I decided to give environmentalists another look. This book opened my eyes. I assumed that most environmentalists were activists - emotional and blind to science. Instead, I found the movement very conducive to science. Best yet, the author shares the engineering perspective of trying to understand the problem in order to fix it.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
If you’ve listened to books by Stewart Brand before, how does this one compare?
I've read a lot of Brand- this is well written and well read.
Which scene was your favorite?
The section on shanty towns.
Do you think Whole Earth Discipline needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
As with all futurists, Brand bats about 500. Half of this book is getting more relevant and half is getting less relevant as years pass.
Any additional comments?
If you are a traditional anti-nuke, anti-GMO enviro, this book will really piss you off.
