About this book

The physical evidence of climate change becomes more dramatic every year: forests retreating, animals moving north and south, glaciers melting, bushfire seasons getting longer, and higher rates of droughts, floods, and storms – with a new type of severe storm, the rain bomb, causing 10 to 20 centimetres of precipitation in a mere hour.

In Too Late, Geoff Maslen discusses the dramatic changes that are occurring to our planet and explains some of their consequenes in simple terms: how are land and ocean affected by global warming, what is a methane time bomb, and what happens once the global temperature rise reaches a critical treshold?

Maslen collects and summarises the science of leading world climate scientists, presents a clear and concise picture of where we are heading and ponders how close to disaster we are. Too Late is a poignant reminder that we must all take on responsibility and act to curb global warming. This is sobering but essential reading for anyone who cares about our planet's future and the generations to come.
