Samenvatting

Mark Nelson, one of the eight crew members locked in Biosphere 2 during its first closure experiment, offers a compelling insider's view of the dramatic story behind the mini-world. Nelson clears up common misconceptions about the 1991-1993 closure experiment as he presents the goals and results of the experiment and the implications of the project for today's global environmental challenges and for reconnecting people to a healthy relationship with nature.

Recensie(s)

Biosphere 2 did not leave an indelible footprint on Earth-system science, but the history of its ambitions as recorded here is too valuable to lose. --BioScience For those who wish to understand B2's history and the impact it had on those involved, I commend Mark's candid account. --Geographical A fascinating account of the largest, longest, and most important experiment in closed ecosystems ever conducted. --Chris McKay, Senior Scientist, NASA In the early 1990s eight people sealed themselves into a self-contained eco-system in the Arizona desert. Two decades later, Mark Nelson reflects on his experience inside Biosphere 2 as a microcosm of our global challenges with water, food, and energy. Only with a deep understanding of the biosphere's workings, Nelson argues, can humanity craft an ethical relationship with the planet Earth. --Melissa L. Sevigny, author of Under Desert Skies: How Tucson Mapped the Way to the Moon and Planets
