“A lucid overview of [environmental] problems and a compelling call to action.” ―Publishers Weekly
From two of science fiction’s most celebrated and brilliant minds―Isaac Asimov and Frederik Pohl―comes the second edition of Our Angry Earth, a comprehensive analysis of today's environmental threats and a guide on how we can heal our planet, with an introduction and afterword from New York Times bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson.
Our Angry Earth provides a candid picture of the present and many possibilities for a better, cleaner future. From the greenhouse effect and depletion of our ozone layer to nuclear waste and species extinction, Asimov and Pohl not only present accessible explanations of complex scientific processes but ways we can improve our behavior and relationship with the planet, whether it be involvement in social activism or individual lifestyle changes.
Kim Stanley Robinson, author of New York Times bestsellers 2312, New York 2140, and the internationally renowned Mars trilogy, brings his decades-spanning expertise in climate change to Our Angry Earth’s introduction and afterword.

ISAAC ASIMOV (1920-1992) was one of science fiction's greatest writers. He wrote prolifically across genres and academic fields, but was best known for his hard science fiction and popular science work. Asimov's fiction includes the short stories "Nightfall" and "I, Robot" and his award-winning novels Foundation's Edge and The Gods Themselves. His "Three Laws of Robotics" is only one example among many of his profound influence on science fiction.
FREDERIK POHL (1919-2013) was a profoundly influential science fiction author and editor. As an award-winning editor, he helmed Galaxy and If, and won the Nebula Award for Man Plus. Pohl collaborated with other sf authors such as Cyril M. Kornbluth on The Space Merchants, and Arthur C. Clarke on The Last Theorem.
