One Man’s Planet is one slightly off-centered geologist’s introduction on how politics, pop-culture and the earth sciences intersect. It’s a humorous look at the science issues that grace the news and drive political debates from local town councils to international discourse. One Man’s Planet picks apart the rhetoric on all sides of these debates to look at how the science describes the issue. Tackling topics like climate, energy, water, and hazards, Stephen Testa channels Pink Floyd, Mad Max, and Shakespeare among others to examine the latest scientific understanding of these issues. Testa deftly weaves topics into a very informative and entertaining tapestry on the planet today and the planet’s tomorrow. Come tour the Earth with Testa as your guide!
