A group of scientists are mysteriously kidnapped and shuttled away to an unknown civilization. Fear and anger are soon replaced by intrigue, excitement and privilege as they learn that the fate of the Earth is in their hands.... Written by prominent scientist Professor George Ter-Stepanian, Wiser Than Humans is an inspiring and politically motivated adventure thriller whose driving concern is environmental protection. The story's sci-fi elements are cleverly supported by scientific, historical and cultural facts. Readers learn about the ecological transformation of the Earth through the lenses of several branches of science, including biology, geology and engineering. They are also introduced to astrology, anthropology, paleontology, history, art and architecture through the plot and interactions with main characters. The narrative unfolds in an exciting and easy-to-read style. The book discusses a range of environmental issues, many of which have not been given enough attention and which pose extreme and urgent threats to humanity and the planet. Scientist and Professor George Ter-Stepanian authored ten monographs and more than 300 scientific papers. He wrote Wiser Than Humans, his only fiction work, in the 1980s to educate people about the irreversible harm that human activity brings to the atmosphere, the ocean and species diversity. He hoped it would serve as a call to environmental action.
