" The Companion Volume to the PBS Television Series "
  • Hardback book with Dust Jacket by Jonathan Weiner
  • Fully Illustrated
  • Copyright 1986 by Metropolitan Pittsburgh Public Broadcasting, Inc. and Jonathan Weiner
  • " In the past thirty years new technology has created an extraordinary revolution in our knowledge of Planet Earth.
    Satellites, robot space probes, manned undersea vehicles, computer enhanced images- all these have inspired new theories about how our planet was created, the dynamics at work today, and our potential to harness the earth's energies in the future, or tip the balance toward disaster. "
  • " PLANET EARTH is based on an extraordinary global effort by WQED/Pittsburgh, in a landmark association with the National Academy of Science, to bring millions of television viewers up-to-date on these amazing breakthroughs.
    This book is a guide to our living, changing planet.
    We journey to the rim of a great meteor crater for evidence of the cosmic collisions from which Earth was born.
    We travel back in time to 1930, in the icy heart of Greenland, with German scientist Alfred Wegener, who sought all his life to find out why identical fossils exist on continents thousands of miles apart, and why mountain ranges, separated by vast oceans, have the same geology.
    We journey to the outer reaches of our solar system, dive to a site of sea-floor spreading and watch molten rock erupt from the heart of the Earth to form new undersea mountains and a new ocean floor.
    We will find the awesome truth- that the fires of creation under the sea- and we will meet the bizarre denizens of that nether world. "
  • " Ultimately, we will come to see this planet not as a hunk of stone in space but much more like a living organism- with its own internal dynamics, exchanging gases, healing itself, increasingly dependent on a new host creature- man - to shapen its future. "
