In an easily accessible work of enormous scope and depth,
John J. Berger vividly evokes the looming hazards of a
warmer world. Based on the latest climate science, Climate
Peril reveals that the impacts of climate change on our
health, economy, and environment are far worse—and more
imminent—than many realize. The book identifies the
obstacles to climate protection and shows why steep and
unprecedented—yet affordable—cuts in greenhouse gases are
needed now to avert a global climate catastrophe.
Climate Peril portrays the radically altered world we will
create in 2100 A.D. if greenhouse gas emissions are not
reduced and documents the rapid and unnatural climate
change already taking place. The book explores all major
consequences of climate change, especially its astonishing
impacts on the economy, human health, other species, and
the oceans. Among other awesome risks, Climate Peril
describes the billions of ton of carbon lurking in ocean
sea beds and thawing permafrost and the global danger of
crossing an invisible threshold beyond which catastrophic
climate changes become inevitable.
While its conclusions are alarming, Climate Peril is above
all a realistic and authoritative book that you can use to
better understand how climate change may affect you and
Climate Peril is the second of a three book series. Volume
1, Climate Myths, focused on the political campaign waged
against climate science. Volume 3, Climate Solutions
(forthcoming), shows how to create a climate-safe world by
radically transforming global energy, transportation, and
land use practices.
