McKibben, Bill. Eaarth. New York: Time /Henry Holt, 2010. Print.

The environmental history novel Eaarth, written by Bill McKibben, illustrates the history of global warming and the pressuring impact that climate changecurrently has on society. For centuries, we, human beings, have continued to stain the purity of nature with our fingerprints. The continuous manipulation of the environment overtime has altered our planet so significantly that McKibben believes we have created a new planet. Rather than “ Earth”, its scientific name, McKibben refers to it as “Eaarth”—in honor of its new characteristics. In the Preface, McKibben states, “Instead of a world where rain had an independent …show more content…
Society has ignored the changing climate for too long. With the hope of enlightening our generation, McKibben addresses this topic in a hostile manner to bring awareness. By illustrating an image of desolation, describing our planet to be an “inhabitable place” if we don’t change our habits, the author captures the attention of his readers (1). Eaarth is stylistically written in a suitable manner for the intended audience. McKibben refrains from scolding his audience by using “we” rather than “you”—intending that change is only possible if everyone, from all over the world, works together. Rather than simply discussing how climate changed has affected America, he speaks globally about this disaster—as it is typically worse in other countries due to their location on Earth. In addition to adding as aspect of fear, McKibben provides scientific evidence with every statement he makes about the changing environment. Rather than simply stating that temperatures are globally at an all-time high, he states, “Burma set the new mark for the Southeast Asia at 118 degrees, and Pakistan the new zenith for all of Asia at 129 degrees…warmest six months, the warmest year, and the warmest decade for which we have records” (214). On the other hand, McKibben provides so many statistics that it’s almost overwhelming to the …show more content…
While a good portion of his work covers the damage that has already surfaced Earth, he proposes a plethora of theories regarding what the future may look like. Although the element of terror is part of his technique in persuading his audience into caring about the pressing issue of climate change, it is not scientifically accurate—nobody can predict future events with complete assurance. In addition to this, if there is one thing to take away from this book, it is that Bill McKibben eats, sleeps, and breathes the project of decreasing the carbon dioxidemolecules to 350 parts per million—a safe ratio. While it is true that at the beginning of civilization, our atmosphere contained only 275 parts per million of carbon dioxide, which is a lot lower than it is now, McKibben is the founder of 350.org. This environmental organization is his personal project which aims to equalize the unsafe ratio that currently exists. Due to his personal investment in the organization, it seems as though McKibben is biased towards this movement which is why it is so prioritized in his
