About this book

This work presents an eye-opening and vital account of the future of our earth and our civilisation if current rates of global warming persist, by the highly acclaimed author of "High Tide".

Praise for 'High Tide': 'If you are among those who think climate change is an uncertain, remote issue over which scientists are unsure, politicians talk endlessly to little effect, and mere individuals have no power at all, this book may be for you.' Guardian 'There will be many more books like 'High Tide', but this will be remembered as the first!it'll be the one with the original vision!Not unworthy of comparison with Orwell and certainly the breaker of new ground.' Independent 'Mark Lynas!has time-travelled into our terrifying collective future!Go with him on this breathtaking, beautifully told journey!I promise that you will come back!determined to alter the course of history.' Naomi Klein, author of 'No Logo' 'Clear, lucid and informative.' New Statesman 'A thoroughly engaging and well-researched book.' Times Literary Supplement
