About this book

Few now dispute that we face climate change. We need to plan for the worst. But good advice has been hard to come by - until now. "The Global Warming Survival Kit" takes you through a multitude of scenarios, including: how to keep safe when all power is lost and all hell breaks loose; how to get drinkable water; how to keep cool and/or warm; what to eat to stay alive; essential survival equipment; where to live to minimize the impact of climate change; how to use your natural creativity to enhance your chances of survival. And much, much more. We can all hope that the worst scenario won't happen - but it might.
