Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for FORECAST by Stephan Faris.

Subtitled "The Consequences of Climate Change, from the Amazon to the Arctic, from Darfur to Napa Valley".

"Journalist Faris shows how the genocide in Darfur has roots in desertification and may be a foretaste of climatically driven political chaos. He describes how the emigration of Africans to Europe is causing economic pressures that are being met with fascistic movements in Italy and Britain. Locals are abandoning Key West and New Orleans due to unsustainable insurance premiums; Bangladesh is likely to be flooded out of existence; and drought may wipe out the Amazon rain forest within 70 years. Faris predicts a world depicted by Mad Max, only hotter, with no beaches and perhaps with even more chaos."
- Publishers Weekly (US)

"A journalist concerned with on-the-ground evidence of global warming, Faris reports on what he learned in visits to various regions around the world. A global climatic component is involved in local environmental situations, Faris finds, the details of which he expands in presenting the explanations of scientific or policy experts. What counts most in this work, however, are the impressions of climate change Faris gathered from his interviews with local inhabitants. In addition to covering local people’s observations about desertification, coral bleaching, and the temperature-sensitive wine-making industry, Faris looks into local political ramifications, especially those concerning people forced to move because of environmental stresses. Faris’ reportorial techniques work well in his narrative, priming readers for his recommendation for urgent action on climate change."
