Title:Harvesting Space for a Greener Earth [electronic resource]

Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:What was our planet like in years past? How has our civilization affected Earth and its ecology? Harvesting Space for a Greener Planet, the Second Edition of Paradise Regained: The Regreening of the Earth, begins by discussingthese questions, and the n generates a scenario for the restoration of Earth. It introduces new and innovative ideas on how we could use the Solar System and its resources for terrestrial benefit. The environmental challenges that faceus today cannot be resolved by conservation a nd current technologies alone. Harvesting Space highlights the risk of humankinds future extinction from environmental degradation. Population growth, global climate change, andmaintaining sustainability of habitats for wildlife are all considered, among other issues. Rather than losing heart, we need to realize that the solutions to these problems lie in being good stewards of the planet and in thedevelopment of space. Not only will the solutions offered here avert a crisis, they will also provide the ba sis for continued technological and societal progress. Tapping the resources of near-Earth asteroids will lead to methods ofdiverting those asteroids that threaten Earth. Space-based terrestrial power generation systems will work synergistically with Eart h-based conservation. This book needs to be read urgently and widely, if we are to save ourselves fromenvironmental disaster, reduce the risk of catastrophic cosmic impacts, and build a prosperous and sustainable future for all the creatures of Earth
