Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

An argument for the urgent danger of global warming in a book that is sure to be as influential as Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring."
Known for her insightful and thought-provoking journalism, "New Yorker" writer Elizabeth Kolbert now tackles the controversial subject of global warming. Americans have been warned since the late nineteen-seventies that the buildup of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere threatens to melt the polar ice sheets and irreversibly change our climate. With little done since then to alter this dangerous course, now is the moment to salvage our future. By the end of the century, the world will likely be hotter than it's been in the last two million years, and the sweeping consequences of this change will determine the future of life on earth for generations to come.
In writing that is both clear and unbiased, Kolbert approaches this monumental problem from every angle. She travels to the Arctic, interviews researchers and environmentalists, explains the science and the studies, draws frightening parallels to lost ancient civilizations, unpacks the politics, and presents the personal tales of those who are being affected most--the people who make their homes near the poles and, in an eerie foreshadowing, are watching their worlds disappear. Growing out of a groundbreaking three-part series for the "New Yorker," "Field Notes from a Catastrophe" brings the environment into the consciousness of the American people and asks what, if anything, can be done, and how we can save our planet.
