The Uninhabitable Earth by David Wallace-Wells

Halfway through The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming,  Wallace-Wells writes “If you have made it this far, you are a brave reader.” There is enough information on every page to produce a week-long panic attack. 

It’s more than just melting ice-caps and dying bees, Wallace-Wells covers everything – flooding, droughts, species die off, food scarcity, climate-induced wars, refugees, disease, financial collapse, climate-induced violence, unpredictable weather patterns, superstorms, wildfires, our choked and dying oceans – and it’s only getting worse. As China and India rise in population and enter their own industrial revolutions the strain on the Earth will be devastating.

Our worst enemy may be our own optimism. This book is important but really depressing.
