Wind­fall: The Boom­ing Busi­ness of Global Warm­ing

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Books Of Interest -

By Mcken­zie Funk Pen­guin, pa­per­back, 320 pages, $26 Mcken­zie Funk has spent six years re­port­ing around the world on how we are pre­par­ing for a warmer planet, and he shows us that the best way to un­der­stand the catas­tro­phe of global warm­ing is to see it through the eyes of those who see it most clearly - as a mar­ket op­por­tu­nity. Global warm­ing’s phys­i­cal im­pacts can be sep­a­rated into three broad cat­e­gories: melt, drought, and del­uge. Funk trav­els to two dozen coun­tries to pro­file en­tre­pre­neur­ial peo­ple who see in each of th­ese forces a po­ten­tial wind­fall. To un­der­stand how the world is pre­par­ing to warm, Wind­fall fol­lows the money.
