Summary

We only have one planet, and its climate and ecosystem are essential to our survival.

A veritable tsunami of studies and assessment reports outlines a stark picture of humanity's detrimental impacts on our planet's life and environmental health. Climate change is at the heart of many of these impacts. We cannot continue to live in the same way; we're facing relentless population
growth, paired with ever-expanding energy and resource consumption. Every day we dither exacerbates the issues we have to repair. What are our options, though?

We can still avert the doomsday scenario and choose more sustainable behavior. Decisive action can still make a significant difference to our environment. In Rebalancing Our Climate, Eelco J. Rohling documents a wealth of ways to adjust the trajectory of climate change. He outlines measures to drive
massive reductions of greenhouse gas emissions, remove these gases from our atmosphere, and reflect part of the incoming energy from the Sun back into space. The book evaluates both advantages and disadvantages of changing our behaviour.

Rohling thus addresses the issues that affect the pathways to our survival in an understandable way. He also showcases the need to protect ourselves from impacts that have become inevitable already and presents ways to drive society to get these jobs done. The resulting book provides powerful facts
and arguments to support informed choices about how we manage our dear planet.
