Author Steven M. Testa will hold a book signing for One Man’s Planet: Earth in Today’s Political Culture, published by the American Geological Institute (AGI) at the 2010 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco, California.
The author will be signing copies of his book from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Tuesday December 14, 2010 at the AGI booth (#632) in the Moscone West exhibit hall. In addition to the book signing, copies of One Man’s Planet will be available for purchase throughout the meeting.
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!
