About this book

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. Bold, unflinching, and based on extensive research, this book 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.

eloquently explores the 'grim detail' of how governments will grapple with a challenge unprecedented since before there were governments. You won't find this stuff in any IPCC report... It makes for a good read. New Scientist

"compelling... a warning of what could happen if we don't pull our fingers out." The Big Issue
