About this book

Elizabeth Kolbert's environmental classic Field Notes from a Catastrophe first developed out of a groundbreaking, National Magazine Award-winning three-part series in The New Yorker. She expanded it into a still-concise yet richly researched and damning book about climate change: a primer on the greatest challenge facing the world today.

But in the years since, the story has continued to develop; the situation has become more dire, even as our understanding grows. Now, Kolbert returns to the defining book of her career. She adds a chapter bringing things up-to-date on the existing text, plus she adds three new chapters – on ocean acidification, the tar sands, and a Danish town that's gone carbon neutral – making it, again, a must-read for our moment.
