Description
Now retired, Snook spent 30 years in the oil industry as a petroleum geologist involved in production and exploration geology throughout the western U.S. and western Canada, during which he studied the effects of carbon dioxide and other atmospheric conditions on plant growth and observed glacier activity. He presents an analysis of the cause of the last extinction--and it implications for plants, animals, and humans--in which he theorizes that the extinction was brought about by a drastic reduction in atmospheric carbon dioxide, due to the long period of cold. The text also considers mankind's current situation and some of the things that can be expected in the future. Academic but accessible to the general reader.
