Flooded Earth, Paperback (August 2012)
"A beautifully written, thoroughly researched and relentlessly terrifying work, and a must-read for anybody with an interest in the environment or the future of our planet."--Salon.com
Under A Green Sky, Paperback (June 2008)
According to paleontologist Ward, all but one of the major extinction events in history have been brought on by climate change--the same global warming that occurs today. The author argues that events in the past can give valuable information about the future of our planet.
Life and Death of Planet Earth, Paperback (August 2007)
This is a vivid description of the second half of the life of our planet. Combining their knowledge of evolution with their understanding of the life cycle of stars and solar systems, the authors predict that the process will essentially reverse itself until only the simplest forms remain on Earth.
Rare Earth, Paperback (December 2003)» View all books by Peter Douglas Ward
What determines whether complex life will arise on a planet or even any life at all? This book investigates such questions, synthesizing information from astronomy, biology, and paleontology, and applying it to what we know about the rise of life on Earth and to what could possibly happen elsewhere in the universe.
