A passionately written book, Earth@Risk is meant to sensitize the reader not only about the risks posed to this oasis of life by the current anthropogenic onslaught but also towards the loss that happens everyday. Loss as in the forests that are cut, in the rising Green House Gas emissions, in the poisoned rivers, in melted glaciers and in the life-forms that will never ever roam on this planet again. Earth@Risk is meant to awaken the reader and to make him feel this loss!
The book is about the life force that barely clings to an otherwise rocky planet, in the form of a very thin film, nearly 1/1000th the diameter. The biosphere as it is known in science, happens to be the only home to all life forms known to man.

Dr. Jami Hossain, a leading environmentalist and a renewable energy enthusiast, presents a uniquely distinctive perception of Earth, rendering it with an aura of precious life force, a life bearing capacity that is not to be found for hundreds of thousands of light years in the universe. Hossain lucidly yet passionately describes Earth's trajectory towards climatic and tectonic imbalance, which can unleash unimaginable forces and processes threatening the current state of the biosphere (The Cocoon).
