Description

The world has known about global warming since the late 1970s, yet little has been done to halt it. The threat, if we fail, is nothing less than catastrophe - the flooding of coastal communities, the extinction of species and entry into a climate regime of which humans have no experience. Exploring the relationship between what we know and what we refuse to know, Elizabeth Kolbert takes us on an urgent journey from the Arctic to Central America, interviewing researchers, environmentalists and traditional Inuits whose lives have already been dramatically altered by climate change.

Author Biography

Elizabeth Kolbert was a reporter for the New York Times for fourteen years before becoming a staff writer for the New Yorker covering politics. She and her husband, John Kleiner, have three sons. They live in Williamstown, MA.
