Andrew Y. Glikson, an Earth and paleo-climate scientist, studied geology at the University of Jerusalem and graduated at the University of Western Australia in 1968. He conducted geological surveys of the oldest geological formations in Australia, South Africa, India and Canada; studied large asteroid impacts, including effects on the atmosphere and oceans of mass extinction of species. Since 2005 he studied the relations between climate and human evolution. He was active in communicating nuclear issues and climate change evidence to the public and parliament through papers, lectures, conferences and presentations.Andrew Glikson has published already several earlier book volumes with Springer, among which "The Asteroid Impact Connection of Planetary Evolution" in 2013, "Climate, Fire and Human Evolution: The Deep Time Dimensions of the Anthropocene", (with C. Groves), in 2016 and "The Plutocene: Blueprints for a Post-Anthropocene Greenhouse Earth" in 2017. Franco Pirajno is a recognized expert on mineral systems, with more than 50 years of experience, in industry, academia and government. He has extensive knowledge of tectonics, ore deposit geology in: Europe, southern Africa, South East Asia, New Zealand, southwest Pacific, China, southern Siberia, Greenland and Australia. He is the author of four books and a monograph on mineral deposits and of more than 175 peer-reviewed papers, 20 peer-reviewed geological maps and 68 unpublished company reports.
