Publishers Weekly

"[Porder] takes the time to explain considerable data to skeptics. . . . And this scientific information is made even more accessible because of Porder’s engaging storytelling and views of different milieus like farms to illustrate what more sustainable alternatives could look like."---Joseph S. Pete, Foreword Reviews

"Porder writes with precision, style, clarity and logic. . . . [He] offers a way forward, filled with optimism and driven by consumers of energy, by regular folks, by you and me."---David Gascoigne, Travels with Birds

"An original take on geology and evolution focusing on the role of five of life’s essential elements."

Paradigm Explorer

"The biogeochemistryof the C, N, H, O, and P combines into the various compounds that make up life-forms. [This book] shows the need to more completely understand the roles these elements play in everyday life and be better stewards."---J.L. Hatfield, Choice

"Porder's clear and concise writing is perfect for teens interested in ecology, climate science, and chemistry."---George Kendall, Booklist
