From the opening and closing of oceans over millions of years to the overnight reshaping of landscapes by volcanoes, the Earth beneath our feet is constantly changing. The Rough Guide to the Earth explores all aspects of our dynamic planet, from the planetas origins and evolution and the seasons and tides to melting ice caps, glaciers and climate change. Featuring many spectacular images and helpful diagrams, this Rough Guide provides a fascinating and accessible introduction to Earth science.But tens of thousands of years beyond that comes a Type II civilization, whose members have control of the whole energy output of a star. Type III (the last one he suggests) would control the energy output of an entire galaxy of billions of stars, a form of civilization so ... for the Earth because it would turn humanity into a solar-powered society with few long-term demands on the Eartha#39;s own resources.
