Product name: Deep Future
Reviewer: Suzanne Chellingworth
Author: By Curt Stager
What will the Earth look like in 100,000 years? That’s the question that prompted paleoclimatologist and university lecturer Stager to write this book.
Humans are now the dominant climatic force on the planet, polluting our planet with so much carbon dioxide that temperatures will continue to rise for at least another 1,000 years.
Most climate science focusses on this century but, in Deep Future, Stager looks far beyond to a time when the climate shifts from warming to cooling – what he dubs ‘climate whiplash’.
Informative and persuasive, Stager explores the atmosphere's history and compares it to its present condition, and forms clear ideas about what can be expected for our planet long into the future.
A book that will change the way climate sceptics, activists and everyone in between thinks.
