Description

Brought to you by Penguin. 

It is worse, much worse, than you think. 

The slowness of climate change is a fairy tale, perhaps as pernicious as the one that says it isn't happening at all, and if your anxiety about it is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today. 

Over the past decades, the term 'Anthropocene' has climbed into the popular imagination - a name given to the geologic era we live in now, one defined by human intervention in the life of the planet. But however sanguine you might be about the proposition that we have ravaged the natural world, which we surely have, it is another thing entirely to consider the possibility that we have only provoked it, engineering first in ignorance and then in denial a climate system that will now go to war with us for many centuries, perhaps until it destroys us. In the meantime, it will remake us, transforming every aspect of the way we live - the planet no longer nurturing a dream of abundance but a living nightmare.

Written and read by David Wallace-Wells, The Uninhabitable Earth is a powerful examination of the world we find ourselves in.

Real life horror story

If 10% of this book is truth and that truth comes to pass then as a species we are in allot of trouble. There is so much press about climate and allot of talk about renewable energy and our ability to engineer our way out of the problem of global warming. David puts this talk to the test and in short it’s not good. Lots of facts and figures but most of it is referenced albeit vaguely. It’s high level but that’s the point.

Life-changing

A fascinating look at things to come, unless we act.

With regards the performance/narration, I think that David Wallace-Wells did a great job. Having the narration delivered by the author adds value, in my opinion.

Great book marred by poor delivery

A must read. Fascinating. Pity the delivery is so poor. The voice is unattractive and the reader (none other than the author himself) seems to be reading the text for the first time, with pauses in all the wrong places. Still, I recommend this urgent environmental wake-up call.

Beängstigend und alarmierend, was da auf....

.... uns zukommt. Definitiv kein einfaches Buch zum nebenbei hören, aber es öffnet einem die Augen, dass unter Klimawandel weit mehr als "nur" steigende Meeresspiegel zu verstehen sind. Meines Erachtens eine Pflichtlektüre für jeden.

An exact report on our becoming of age doom

If there is anything that I have learned from this book is that we jave to act now and drastically change our ways to at least reduce the climate change effects.
Even if we navigate unhindered towards our demise, we can still make it less painful for our children.

A gruelsome panorama of a overheated Earth

Tje scientific and multi facetted approach of the author makes total sense in this horrifying but essential book, this is a must read and a clear, positive and very strong call to action !

Eye-opening

We’ve been lied for decades now, and waves of misinformation scramble all over the world. This book helped me get a clear picture of the actual incumbent dangers that our species might face if we don’t change our political and private behavior.
