Author Elizabeth Kolbert is speaking at @rowanuniversity today at 11am in Pfleeger Hall--excited to hear her speak, but also horrified this is our current human-caused reality. #PROFspective #thesixthextinction #kolbert #elizabethkolbert
I stumbled upon this #climatejustice protest at Union Square last night on the way to hear #ElizabethKolbert  give a lecture on #TheFateOfTheEarth. A prominent message at both events was our devastation and neglect of communities /species with lesser power and privilege.  It was an appropriately gloomy night to hear these sobering messages.

A Terra já passou por cinco processos de extinção em massa, sendo que o mais conhecido deles foi o que ocorreu há 65 milhões de anos e que teve como fator crucial a queda de um asteroide na Península de Yucatán, no México, causando a extinção dos dinossauros (ou da maioria absoluta deles). Acontece que uma sexta grande extinção parece estar em curso e longe das atividades vulcânicas, sísmicas e até astronômicas desse último grande evento, desta vez, NÓS somos a catástrofe. 
A sexta extinção, vencedor do Pulitzer de Não Ficção em 2015

What is a better October non-fiction read than a book that discusses the impending destruction of humanity? I haven't read this one yet, but it's high on my #tbr list. This book won the #pulitzerprize and so I have high hopes it will  be very good.

📚I finished a fantastic book today, Elizabeth Kolbert's 'The Sixth Extinction.' It looks at a number of studies and considers multiple scientific disciplines such as anthropology, biology, ecology, Darwinism, and paleontology. 
The stories of animals now hugely threatened, and those long gone. 
It is at times both funny and deeply devastating, especially when I see the effects of it now wherever I look.
👉🏻👉🏻👉🏻SWIPE if you didn't see my story today.
I really, really recommend anyone with an interest in animals, history or conservation to pick it up, because I couldn't put it down.
(Actually read a lot of parts twice partly out of awe but also disbelief.)

A very interesting book, which tells you in no nonsense way how insignificant we are in the earths history still how we posses demonic powers to alter the course of evolution. It leaves you with an eerie warning that we could be both the dinosaurs and meteroid in the next extinction event. 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Mein #Lieblingsbuch 2017 auch wenn es schon vor längerem erschienen ist. Schon ab der ersten Seite will man den #Bestseller nicht weglegen. So macht Wissensvermittlung echt Spaß und aus dem morgendlichen Duschen wurde ein Vollbad damit ich ja diesen #Roman - mit dem #pulitzerprize vor zwei Jahren ausgezeichnet - weiterlesen kann. Bei jokers reduziert!!

#dassechstesterben von #elizabethkolbert ist auf deutsch im #suhrkampverlag erschienen und ein Muss für jeden der sonst gerne meine Lieblingssendungen #nano und #kulturzeit auf 3sat verfolgt 😍 bzw. wer sich für Wissenschaft, Literatur interessiert und über den Tellerrand schauen will. Ich wurde oft in der Schule schon oft dumm angeschaut, weil ich mir ab der 8. Klasse den Spiegel gekauft habe (und die Glamour ab der 1. Ausgabe auf deutsch 😂), in Geschichte u. Sozialkunde immer nur die Note sehr gut hatte und die Börsenkurse kannte (zu meiner Verteidigung ich hatte damals Aktien) & ehrlich gesagt hoffe ich meine Kinder werden auch solche Nerds, denn wenn heute jemand sagt die Parteiprogramme sind alles die selben und oder kein Interesse am Verbot von Glyphosat hat, geschweige denn meint er müsse behaupten es gäbe keine Anhaltspunkte für den Klimawandel, den kann ich wenigstens guten Gewissens mit Fakten versuchen zu überzeugen - denn es gibt unseren Planeten nur einmal! Und zum Thema Wählen: wer nivht wählt darf auch bitte die nächsten vier Jahre zum Thema deutsche Politik den Schnabel halten. Ja es ist schwierig, denn keine Partei passt zu einem zu 100%  aber nur alle vier Jahre haben wir die Möglichkeit unsere Stimme abzugeben.
Ein Freund hat mir am Di. erzählt, dass er vor längerem einmal einen Vortrag gehört hatte und dabei kam das Thema Wahk auf. Und diesen Denkanstoß gebe ich einfach einmal weiter:
Warum heißt die Wahlurne denn Urne - ein sehr negativ besetztes Wort.
Man gibt seine Stimme ab. Erst nach vier Jahren bekommt man sie wieder, die Zeit dazwischen kann sich anfühlen als wäre man in der Politik stumm, der Stimme beraubt... Gute Nacht wünschen euch Bubi (trinkt gerade seine Milch aus) und seine Mama

P.S.: Lasst euch #dassechstesterben ja nicht entgehen

Öğretim yılına başlamak için çok iyi bir fikir. Stanford her yıl üç kitap seçiyor, yeni öğrencilerinden okula bunları okumuş olarak başlamalarını istiyor. Bu özgün oryantasyon programı sayesinde gençler aynı şeylere kafa yorarak, ortak bir farkındalıkla okula başlıyor. İlerleyen haftalarda yazarlar okula davet ediliyor, kitapları tartışıyor. Bu sene iki roman, bir nonfiction var: Homegoing / Yaa Gyasi. Salvage the Bones / Jesmyn Ward. The Sixth Extinction / Elizabeth Kolbert. Yalnızca okullar değil, duygu birliği yaratmak isteyen her kurum uygulayabilir gibi geldi bana. Three Books is a signature Stanford New Student Orientation program for first-year and new transfer students. #threebooks #stanfordthreebooks #thesixthextinction #elizabethkolbert #homegoingbook #salvagethebones

"No creature has ever altered life on the planet in this way before, and yet other, comparable events have occurred... In what seems like a fantastic coincidence, but is probably no coincidence at all, the history of these events is recovered just as people come to realize that they are causing another one." #currentlyreading #bookstagram #bookworm #bookish #instabook #thesixthextinction #elizabethkolbert

Sigo con el #tbt de mis fotos aunque no sea jueves. 
La sexta extinción es un libro que me encantó, y que a mí pensar por mera cultura general se debería leer. Me encanta el humor que pone la autora con los temas que toma pero también que nos haga ver cómo nos estamos jodiendo el mundo. 
Sinopsis del libro:

En la historia del planeta, hubo cinco hechos conocidos que provocaron extinciones. El último se produjo hace 65 millones de años, cuando un asteroide de un tamaño equivalente a la mitad de Manhattan chocó contra la Tierra y exterminó a los dinosaurios, lo que dio por terminado el período cretáceo. Los científicos afirman que en la actualidad experimentamos la sexta extinción, debido a que casi el 50 por ciento de todas las especies vivas están en peligro de desaparecer antes del fin de siglo. Pero a diferencia de las otras extinciones, la causa directa esta vez somos nosotros: el cambio climático provocado por los seres humanos. En el libro “The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History” (La sexta extinción. Una historia antinatural), la periodista Elizabeth Kolbert visita cuatro continentes para documentar la “desaparición gradual” generalizada que se produjeron hace millones de años y la que se está produciendo ahora ante nuestros ojos. Kolbert explora cómo la actividad humana, el consumo de combustibles fósiles, la acidificación de los océanos, la contaminación, la deforestación y las migraciones forzadas amenazan contra formas de vida de todo tipo. "Se estima que un tercio de todos los corales que forman arrecifes, un tercio de todos los moluscos de aguas dulces, un tercio de los tiburones y las rayas, un cuarto de todos los mamíferos, un quinto de todos los reptiles y un sexto de todas las aves están cayendo en el olvido”, escribe Kolbert.

I am gifted with a great many things - a strong immune system is not one of them. I'll go from pinkeye to strep throat to a stomach flu, and licking the CTA handrails at every opportunity (or at least working with teenagers) doesn't seem to be helping. And then I lose my voice and live in a world of silence and storytelling, and you can read to me and tell me your secrets, and when I'm not in feverdreams for weeks on end, maybe I can even read this whole stack of books of summer reading, at least sometimes, 4 pages at a time, to take little breaks from the news that seem to announce a new world order every 20 minutes. Thanks for being out there fighting when I can't. And for the soup offers.

Don't think that your actions are irrelevant. It's better than none. Even choosing to use less plastic, minimizing water use, buying only what you need, and many other things you do each day to help Mother Earth. Continue to hope that with our small actions, we'll make a difference.

|en+ru| Shocking book about the present era of the sixth extinction, the catalyst of which is humanity. Elizabeth Kolbert "The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History". For realists interested in ecology and sustainable development. For everyone who cares.
▫️▫️▫️
На днях я закончила читать серьезную нон-фикшн книгу, после которой пессимисты впадут в депрессию, оптимисты скажут, что не так уж все печально, а пофигисты... ну, тут все ясно. "Шестое вымирание: неестественная история" Элизабет Колберт. Реалисты, эта книга для вас! Для тех, кто задумается: "А что могу сделать (или не сделать) Я уже сегодня? Где сфера МОЕЙ ответственности в этом вопросе?"
▫️
Книга о том, что сейчас мы живем в эпоху «шестого вымирания», катализатором запуска которой стали сами. О том, что массовое исчезновение видов не стоит недооценивать, так как в экосистеме все взаимосвязано. И о том, что человечество тоже всего лишь вид, а значит... догадайтесь сами.
▫️
Американская журналистка, колумнист журнала The New Yorker, автор нескольких книг о глобальных проблемах пишет об экологии и устойчивом развитии. Во время работы над «Шестым вымиранием» побывала почти на всех континентах, посещала научные базы в тропиках Амазонии и на островах Большого Барьерного Рифа, участвовала в сеансе УЗИ суматранского носорога и собирала трупы летучих мышей в пещерах на севере США. В основе работы шокирующие, но обьективные научные данные, цифры и многолетние исследования, так что лауреатом Пулитцеровской премии она стала не зря.
▫️
Просто одна цитата: "Если вы знаете, что искать, то обнаружите следы вымирания и у себя на заднем дворе».
▫️
Кто читал, как вам?
P.S. Фотки с Тая с динозаврами неожиданно пригодились😊

Где сфера МОЕЙ ответственности в этом вопросе?" ▫️ Книга о том, что сейчас мы живем в эпоху «шестого вымирания», катализатором запуска которой стали сами. О том, что массовое исчезновение видов не стоит недооценивать, так как в экосистеме все взаимосвязано. И о том, что человечество тоже всего лишь вид, а значит... догадайтесь сами. ▫️ Американская журналистка, колумнист журнала The New Yorker, автор нескольких книг о глобальных проблемах пишет об экологии и устойчивом развитии. Во время работы над «Шестым вымиранием» побывала почти на всех континентах, посещала научные базы в тропиках Амазонии и на островах Большого Барьерного Рифа, участвовала в сеансе УЗИ суматранского носорога и собирала трупы летучих мышей в пещерах на севере США. В основе работы шокирующие, но обьективные научные данные, цифры и многолетние исследования, так что лауреатом Пулитцеровской премии она стала не зря. ▫️ Просто одна цитата: "Если вы знаете, что искать, то обнаружите следы вымирания и у себя на заднем дворе». ▫️ Кто читал, как вам? P.S. Фотки с Тая с динозаврами неожиданно пригодились😊
It's time for my Women of Wisdom Wednesday!! ...
.
I usually read predominantly fiction in my free time, but The Sixth Extinction is an absolutely CRITICAL piece of non-fiction (imo). It talks about mass extinctions of the past, case studies demonstrating disproportionate extinction today, and the part humans are playing in this. 
As someone who studies environmental science, I have such great respect for people who communicate scientific concepts in a largely accessible way. Elizabeth Kolbert does this in this book incredibly, and that's why she's my Woman of Wisdom for this week! #bookstagram #bookpic #books #womenwriters #womenofwisdom #womenwednesday #sixthextinction #elizabethkolbert #nonfiction #importantreads #keepreading

this weekend, my partner and I traveled to Bulgaria for a wedding! I never thought I'd ever be able to say, "I've been to Bulgaria," but now I can! 
this is the view from our hotel room! started this while we were there and it's a much easier and enjoyable (if you can say that) read than I was expecting. It's incredible to really look at how humans have damaged our home.

and, obviously, a very happy birthday to my favorite witch and wizard, JK Rowling and Harry Potter! ⚡️

My next couple of #BooksOf2017 are now #throwbacks because I've been so busy. This picture tells part of the busy-ness, knocking over #TheBestAmericanScienceAndNatureWriting by #DeborahBlum while working my way through @creativenonfiction 's science writing class. I picked this copy up at @strandbookstore last year and am finally getting to it. When it turned out one of the course readings was in the book, I knew I'd signed up for a good class! Funnily enough though, I wouldn't have put the chosen chapter - #TheRebirthOfGorongosa by #EOWilson - in my top five. I'm coming to realise I'm selfish enough to want a little more anthropocentrism in my science writing. For that reason, I loved #ElizabethKolbert 's historic #TheLostWorld for its journey into the mind of scientists and their battles 200 years ago, and #BarbaraKingsolver 's narrative (and literal) threads in #WhereItBegins . I'll take that anthropocentrism one step further, and profess a love for stories of humans trying to improve our world by harnessing science - though I openly admit this is a risky and fraught endeavour. So I loved #AmyHarmon 'a #ARaceToSaveTheOrangeByAlteringItsDNA . I'm intrigued and enthralled by people with the commitment, patience and precision to perform the #ScientificMethod in their day jobs, and this was a wonderful insight. Finally, it wouldn't have been my kind of medical leave if I hadn't also stumbled on #JoshuaLang 's #Awakening - a piece about people with PTSD from surgery 😑 Also managed to stick a few post-its into #NicholasCarr 's #TheGreatForgetting for some work on #automation back in the office 🤓#SoMuchForEscapism #StudyingOnLeave

Such a good mail day. ❤️ I have a few on my TBR shelf ahead of these guys but I'm all giddy and excited they arrived. // The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History is a 2014 non-fiction book written by Elizabeth Kolbert and published by Henry Holt & Company. The book argues that the Earth is in the midst of a modern, man-made, sixth extinction. // The Narrow Road to the Deep North depicts Allied prisoners of war forced to build a railway under appalling conditions. // Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao is a novel written by Dominican American author Junot Díaz. Although a work of fiction, the novel is set in New Jersey in the United States, where Díaz was raised and deals with the Dominican Republic experience under dictator Rafael Trujillo. The book chronicles both the life of Oscar De León, an overweight Dominican boy growing up in Paterson, New Jersey, who is obsessed with science fiction and fantasy novels and with falling in love, as well as the curse that has plagued his family for generations.

Quite by accident, I discovered the last eight books I've read this year were all authored by women. My mind has been spiraling recently around a few, interconnected themes and I began then to see why. I've collected my thoughts and my praise for these works in an essay I've posted at www.coyoteandthunder.com called "Circular Reoccurence in the Anthropocene: Eight recent books authored by women that address the most important themes of our time." #joandidion #naomikline #camillepaglia #dianeackerman #elizabethkolbert #terrytempestwilliams #robinwallkimmerer #lauracunningham #thefutureisfemale
