Last Generation

Last Generation - How Nature Will Take Her Revenge for Climate Change, a book by Fred Pearce

Fred Pearce has been in the climate investigation reporting business for nearly twenty years. He knows the players and he understands their work. His intimate knowledge of their views and the science behind those outlooks provide a sound foundation for his summation of how climate change is occurring. And it is occurring, he argues.

It's happening so fast that he can confidently assert that this is "The Last Generation" that will enjoy anything like climate stability. That lurching drunk is more powerful and less predictable than previously imagined.

His message is essentially that human impacts on the climate and other ecological features of our planet are reaching a tipping point where it will be impossible to reverse the changes, whatever we do. The evidence is that ice caps don't take thousands of years to melt, for example, but could go in a rush so that sea level rises by 30 metres in ten years, before the end of this century. If you live in London or round the coast, think what that means. And it's just one of he threats we face.

Pearce's writing style is very direct and personal, like reading a good quality newspaper, and he pulls no punches. Buy a copy, read it and send it to your MP.
