The Uninhabitable Earth: A Story of the Future
By David Wallace-Wells (Penguin)
David Wallace-Wells is the deputy editor and climate columnist of New York magazine. Since the early 2000s, he has inverstigated climate change and this book is the fruit of all the years he has spent trying to understand – and to some extent predict – what will happen to the world if the temperature rises as much as scientists have predicted. But, as he notes, this is not a book about the science of warming; it is about what warming means to the way we live on the planet.
