A VOYAGE ACROSS AN ANCIENT OCEAN A Bicycle Journey Through the Northern Dominion of Oil

by | Read by George Newbern

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

In this audiobook, climate scientist Goodrich takes listeners on a bicycle ride through an area of Canada and the Midwest once covered by an ancient ocean to study the effects of oil fracking on climate. Narrator George Newbern documents his journey in an informative yet conversational tone. The many vignettes and stories Goodrich describes help listeners understand this is not a travelogue, but a documented look at the destruction of land and climate by our need for fossil fuel. For example, Oklahoma has earthquakes that it never had before, yet towns in the state have become prosperous. This paradox isn't easy to resolve. Although Newbern's delivery is engaging, the message Goodrich leaves with listeners is strong and simple: Climate change is real. E.E.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
