The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming

´´The Uninhabitable Earth hits you like a comet, with an overflow of insanely lyrical prose about our pending Armageddon.´´-Andrew Solomon, author of The Noonday Demon It is worse, much worse, than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible. In California, wildfires now rage year-round, destroying thousands of homes. Across the US, ´´500-year´´ storms pummel communities month after month, and floods displace tens of millions annually. This is only a preview of the changes to come. And they are coming fast. Without a revolution in how billions of humans conduct their lives, parts of the Earth could become close to uninhabitable, and other parts horrifically inhospitable, as soon as the end of this century. In his travelogue of our near future, David Wallace-Wells brings into stark relief the climate troubles that await-food shortages, refugee emergencies, and other crises that will reshape the globe. But the world will be remade by warming in more profound ways as well, transforming our politics, our culture, our relationship to technology, and our sense of history. It will be all-encompassing, shaping and distorting nearly every aspect of human life as it is lived today. Like An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring before it, The Uninhabitable Earth is both a meditation on the devastation we have brought upon ourselves and an impassioned call to action. For just as the world was brought to the brink of catastrophe within the span of a lifetime, the responsibility to avoid it now belongs to a single generation.

The Chilling Stars
10,49 € *

Scientists agree that the earth has become hotter over the last century. But on the causes, despite what looks to the public mind like a consensus, there are dissenting voices. Based on Henrik Svensmark´s research at the Danish National Space Centre, this book outlines a brilliant and daring new theory that has already provoked fresh thinking on global warming. As prize-winning science writer Nigel Calder and Svensmark himself explain, an interplay of the sun and cosmic rays - sub-atomic particles from exploded stars - seem to have more effect on the climate than man-made carbon dioxide. For anyone interested in the real science behind our climate, this book is a must-read.

The Planet Remade: How Geoengineering Could Cha...
16,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The risks of global warming are pressing and potentially vast. There is an urgent need to rethink our response to the crisis. To meet that need, a small but increasingly influential group of scientists is exploring proposals for planned human intervention in the climate system, including a stratospheric veil against the sun, the cultivation of photosynthetic plankton, and fleets of unmanned ships seeding the clouds. These are the technologies of geoengineering and, as Oliver Morton argues in The Planet Remade, it would be as irresponsible to ignore them as it would be foolish to see them as a simple solution to the problem. Morton explores the history, politics, and cutting-edge science of geoengineering and weighs the promise and perils of these controversial strategies. He addresses the deep fear that comes with seeing humans as a force of nature, and asks what it might mean - and what it might require of us - to try to use that force for good.
