Lovereading view...

An essential, terrifying, and insightful analysis of a world plunging into crisis. Bold, unflinching, and based on extensive research, Climate Wars is an essential guide to the future of our planet that grippingly reveals just how far world powers are likely to go to ensure their own survival in an increasingly hostile environment.

Synopsis

Climate Wars The Fight for Survival as the World Overheats by Gwynne Dyer

Dwindling resources. Massive population shifts. Natural disasters. Any of the expected consequences of climate change could - as Gwyne Dyer argues - tip the world towards chaos and conflict.

Reviews

"Climate Wars: The Fight for Survival as the World Overheats has been called 'a truly important and timely book,' but I'd go further. I'll say this may be the most important book you'll read this year." Mickey Z, planet green

"Gwynne Dyer is one of the few who are both courageous enough to tell the unvarnished truth, and have the background to understand, not misrepresent the inputs. This book does a superb job of detailing the emerging realities of Climate/Energy. These realities are not pretty." Dennis Bushnell, Chief Scientist at NASA

"This is a truly important and timely book. Gwynne Dyer has made the best and most plausible set of guesses I have yet seen about the human consequences of climate change, of how drought and heat may ignite wars, even nuclear wars, around the globe." James Lovelock, award-winning scientist, inventor, and originator of the "Gaia" hypothesis
