The Heat Will Kill You First is about the extreme ways in which our planet is already changing. It is about why spring is coming a few weeks earlier and fall is coming a few weeks later and the impact that will have on everything from our food supply to disease outbreaks. It is about what will happen to our lives and our communities when typical summer days in Chicago or Boston go from 90? F to 110?F. A heatwave, Goodell explains, is a predatory event--one that culls out the most vulnerable people. But that is changing. As heatwaves become more intense and more common, they will become more democratic. As an award-winning journalist who has been at the forefront of environmental journalism for decades, Goodell's new book may be his most provocative yet, explaining how extreme heat will dramatically change the world as we know it.… (més)

A well written book that details different aspects of the impacts of our warming planet. He visits with and shares the stories of different individuals who are researching and dealing with the impacts of climate change. Included are his own travels to parts of the planet, including the South Pole and the Canadian Arctic, where change is happening today. A compelling series of stories that gave me a new perspective on where we are headed, like it or not! ( )

An honest look at the current rise in global temperature and all aspects of life it touches. The depressing reality is peppered with the ways people are actually trying to fix the problem, which only adds temporary relief to this grim reality. Excellent. ( )

A very informative yet easy to read non-fiction diving into the evidence and impact of climate change, and the importance of everyone’s involvement in reducing our carbon footprint. A must read. ( )

If you want to read a book about climate change that will scare the heck out of you, then try The Heat Will Kill You First by Jeff Goodell. Through a nice combination of facts and narrative, historical context and current events, Goodell examines many features of global warming. An excellent book for readers looking to further their knowledge about how heat is ravaging the earth. ( )

I found Goodell to be all over the place as far as writing. The book is set up as a composition of short stories with a central theme of climate change. I was not a fan of the delivery (Goodell's narration is sometimes questionable) but the content is intriguing enough to keep one engaged. It doesn't take away from the message and definitely hits a lot of important concerns regarding the planet. Worth a read. ( )

In 14 whirlwind chapters, Goodell, a longtime climate journalist and contributing editor for Rolling Stone, earns his book’s grim title. The chapters travel from the Arctic Circle to the tropics and back again, tracing the effects of heat on melting ice and suffering corals, but also on enthused mosquitoes, whose ranges are stretching wider as temperatures warm....The scariest thing about the heat-infused future, Goodell notes, is that we don’t treat it with the respect and concern it deserves. When the heat rises, plants, animals and people die. But the coronavirus pandemic showed just how much death and destruction a society can accept. Suffering and death “will become part of what it means to live in the twenty-first century,” Goodell writes. “Something we accept.”
afegit per Lemeritus | editaWashington Post, Shannon Osaka (Web de pagament) (Jul 10, 2023)
 
Fast-paced ... Terrifying ... Goodell’s stripped-down style suits his subject. This is a propulsive book, one to be raced through; the planet is burning, and we are running out of time ... Reads like the hard-boiled sequel to Goodell’s previous book, The Water Will Come. Global warming and rising sea levels are connected, with disastrous effects ... Complacency would only compound the horror, which perhaps explains the tenor of this book.
afegit per Lemeritus | editaNew York Times, Jennifer Szalai (Web de pagament) (Jun 29, 2023)
 
In this gripping examination, Goodell, a Rolling Stone contributing editor and author of The Water Will Come and Big Coal, demonstrates the deleterious effects of rising temperatures and the frightening possibilities of what lies ahead if we don’t take immediate, globally coordinated action. Rather than simply providing scientific data to support his claims, the author provides an intimate look at the effects of our planet's warming on individual lives....Yet another stark, crucial reminder that we are running out of time to save humankind.

When heat comes, it's invisible. It doesn't bend tree branches or blow hair across your face to let you know it's arrived. The ground doesn't shake. It just surrounds you and works on you in ways you can't anticipate or control. -Prologue: The Goldilocks Zone
