Humans have spent centuries trying to control natural processes. We have altered the natural environment to such an extent that it now relies heavily on our capacity to undo the damage.

Kolbert's new book, Under a White Sky, deals with some of the most severe environmental consequences of man-made infrastructure, and how they are being tackled today.
