Sinopse

The true story of how iconic futurist Bucky Fuller inspired a young woman to keep alive his ideas for saving our dear Spaceship Earth. At twenty-four, an eager journalist pledges to R. Buckminster Fuller (Bucky) that she will share his "urgent messages for humanity" with the world. His 1982 warnings about the future of humanity and climate change shake her to the core, but not until 9/11, when his dire predictions about America's failure start to come true, does she wake up and realize her promise has come due. Digging into Fuller's archives at Stanford, she unearths alarming revelations that fuel already outsized passions about what Bucky called "the greatest crime ever committed against humanity." Her outspoken obsessions about big oil's shenanigans threaten her relationships and her sanity, and yet she persists. She must let nothing stop her from living up to her promise to the man once known as the Leonardo da Vinci of the twentieth century. This pop nonfiction novel shares the practical utopian wisdom of twentieth-century American genius R. Buckminster Fuller. The famous Bucky's profoundly relevant warnings in 1982 about the need to wean humanity off fossil fuels sends the author on a near frantic search for both the truth and her own voice, and will help readers do the same.
