"Humans are superb problem-solvers, and the authors make a convincing case that technology will mitigate at least some of the devastation we are inflicting on the Earth... An ingenious, if highly speculative, save-the-planet proposal that emphasizes science over politics." - Kirkus Reviews

"Nothing is wasted in natural systems, yet humankind produces ever-increasing levels of waste. Scientists and science communicators Chris Forman and Claire Asher consider the cycles in nature and how our linear system - production leading to waste - can learn from the cyclical efficiency of ecosystems." - Nature Climate Change
