If you need a hard copy, let me know. I might have an extra one in my library.

Thanks.

That thread is ten years old but worth revisiting.

As someone who publishes books, this is exhilarating and scary.

It looks like you've self-published a book (May as well give it a plug - HARRY: Money Mob and Influence In Harry Reid's Nevada). Are you also in the publishing business?

Looks like “climate change” stuff is right at the top. Gosh, never saw that coming.

Nicholas Cage might be available. But don't give him any money up front.

"Gender Inequalities in the Early Education of Environmental Policy - Summary of a Workshop in Provincetown."

Unless I misread the title, this one sounds interesting: Genetically Engineered Orgasms: Living the Wildlife in a Gender-Neutral Habitat: A Workshop Summary

I'll pass. I went looking for cool plate tectonics stuff and instead found this:

Advancing the Science of Climate Change

Climate change is occurring, is caused largely by human activities, and poses significant risks for--and in many cases is already affecting--a broad range of human and natural systems. The compelling case for these conclusions is provided in Advancing the Science ...

And this:

Adapting to the Impacts of Climate Change

Across the United States, impacts of climate change are already evident. Heat waves have become more frequent and intense, cold extremes have become less frequent, and patterns of rainfall are likely changing. The proportion of precipitation that falls as rain ...

You know, excepting the winter of 2010-11. I mean, all that flooding of the Mississippi can't be from excess snow pack, could it?

Whoops, I should have read the thread before I went and essentially reposted your comments. But I am downloading: Landscapes on the Edge.... Even this book has to go to the “sustainable living surface”. Yeah baby, until Yellowstone blows, or the next Ice Age starts.

During geologic spans of time, Earth’s shifting tectonic plates, atmosphere, freezing water, thawing ice, flowing rivers, and evolving life have shaped Earth’s surface features. The resulting hills, mountains, valleys, and plains shelter ecosystems that interact with all life and provide a record of Earth surface processes that extend back through Earth’s history. Despite rapidly growing scientific knowledge of Earth surface interactions, and the increasing availability of new monitoring technologies, there is still little understanding of how these processes generate and degrade landscapes.

Landscapes on the Edge identifies nine grand challenges in this emerging field of study and proposes four high-priority research initiatives. The book poses questions about how our planet’s past can tell us about its future, how landscapes record climate and tectonics, and how Earth surface science can contribute to developing a sustainable living surface for future generations.
