About this book

Climate change isn't just changing our physical environment – it's irrevocably transforming the global landscape of industry, economics, innovation, science and agriculture.

As temperatures rise at a pace not seen for millions of years and the dizzying ripple effects of this are set in motion, a global contest has been triggered. For some it's a desperate matter of survival. For others a moment to chase profit, power and position. A new world order is being forced and Race for Tomorrow traces, with practical insight, the seismic changes underway.

Which business leaders will conquer clean energy, fake meat, genetic engineering and insurance in a world of superstorms and financial disaster?

With farming one of the strongest drivers of global warming, how are younger generations of indigenous people using technology to fight loggers and militias in the Amazon, while Indian scientists use cutting edge, highly controversial genetic manipulation to help crops withstand extreme conditions?

How is it that genetically engineered mammoths might soon save Siberia's rapidly melting permafrost; cobalt miners in the Congo might finally be seeing glimmers of hope; Chilean winemakers may stay afloat by relocating their vineyards into the Patagonian hills; and Australians may resolve their fierce question of coal – it is both the single biggest factor behind the warming that direly threatens their arid country, but the linchpin of Australian economy.

With every heatwave that sweeps Europe, every superstorm that batters the southeastern US, every multi-billion pound investment in solar power and every children's climate strike, we are confronted by the urgent need to understand what is happening on our planet and what we can do about it. This book, told through vivid human stories and expert insights, lays bare the desperate challenges faced by humanity – as well as the breath-taking resourcefulness we can muster in response.
