Editorial Reviews


"Imagine yourself as an ancestor of people living ten thousand or a hundred thousand years in the future. Ialenti focuses on these unfathomable timescales through the lens of radioactive waste and illuminates how readjusting our time horizon underlies our survival." – Ruth DeFries, Denning Family University Professor of Sustainable Development, Columbia University; author of What Would Nature Do?

"Finland’s nuclear waste safety case project is one of the most extraordinarily large-minded human endeavors. Reading Deep Time Reckoning is, likewise, a mind-expanding experience. Both sober and open to wonder, Vincent Ialenti makes deep time tangible." – David Farrier, author of Footprints: In Search of Future Fossils

"Ialenti captures a world of possibilities, a future that is not as gloomy as it looks to many. In a secularized world of short-term profit-making, Ialenti points to deep time, inviting the reader to explore alternative futures and timescales in order to plot a way out of our current ecological predicaments." – Kate Brown, Professor of Science, Technology, and Society, MIT; author of Manual for Survival: A Chernobyl Guide to the Future

About the Author

Vincent Ialenti is MacArthur Assistant Research Professor in the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University.
