Eric Roston is a science writer in Washington, DC, and author of The Carbon Age: How Life's Core Element Has Become Civilization's Greatest Threat. The book traces the dynamic, fundamental science that unifies seemingly disparate parts of our experience: Climate, energy, health, industry—the fastest way to learn the most about the world is through the carbon atom.
