The Uninhabitable Earth

David Wallace-Wells

Overview

Colossal storms, raging forest fires, unstoppable floods, and unbreathable air. These horrors were once just the high-stakes subjects of adventure movies, but they're fast becoming part of our real lives. Within a generation, humanity brought the earth's climate to breaking point, and our complacency makes it less and less likely that we will come back from the brink.

This may sound dramatic, but in The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming, David Wallace-Wells' seeks to instill in us the reality of the climate crisis by setting out exactly how life could look on a warmer planet. David Wallace-Wells is an American journalist who has written extensively about climate change in publications such as the Guardian and New York Magazine.

The chilling thought that our planet is damaged beyond repair is a frightening prospect – and the nightmare is closer than we might think.

"We think of climate change as slow, but it is unnervingly fast. We think of the technological change to avert it as fast-arriving, but it is deceptively slow judged by how soon we need it."
