"The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts that the average global temperature will rise between 2 degrees and 6.4 degrees Celsius by the end of this century. These are conservative estimates, based on a lowest-common-denominator consensus among scientists and further watered down by governments. They make no allowance for feedback phenomena and potential runaway heating. But a World Bank study in India last year suggested that even 2 degrees hotter means a 25 percent cut in Indian food production. The core problem with climate changes is not sea level rise or bio-diversity; it is food supply."--Provided by publisher.… (més)

Dyer is one of those authors from whom I will buy anything. In this departure from his usual material, he examines climate change. Throughout the book he postulates a number of different scenarios, using his expertise as a military writer, involving likely possibilities for wars and extreme changes in political stances - all directly related to climate change. For example, in one chapter he discusses the likelihood of war between India and Pakistan involving nuclear weaponry. Once the Himalayan glaciers have melted, Pakistan will find itself with greatly reduced water flow while India will fare somewhat better as a great deal of the flow from rivers in that same areas falls as rain. Pakistan already feels they got a raw deal in dividing the watershed and tensions rise from there. I've likely done a poor job at explication here but it gives the general idea. Dyer doesn't stop at these speculative scenarios but also discusses a large variety of means of combating climate change, some on a large scale. It is definitely a book I'd recommend. ( )

Gwynne Dyer steps out of the arena of war and international politics to discuss the most urgent crisis facing our planet - global warming. The book is not comfortable reading. Dyer interviews many recognized climate authorities and posits scenarios based on their thoughts. The book clearly underlines the necessity for global cooperation and more importantly action to avoid great suffering and death on a global scale. ( )

Dyer covers it all - with "projected" scenarios into the future of each part of the earth at different stages of our future - both optimistic (if our leaders can WAKE UP in time) & otherwise. Funny although the topic is potential extinction, I didn't feel despair at reading this - possibly because it was so loaded with facts and I think the human brain feels it somehow can "deal" with things if there are enough facts to go by. (All interviews researching this book were conducted in 2008)
Another REALLY strange thing is that Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth" was on at prime time on the CBC - saw it for the first time - just hours before finishing this book. ( )
