Waterstones Says

An urgent and exhaustive snapshot of how the climate crisis is affecting the world, Mundy's engrossing book ranges across twenty-six countries and takes in penetrating interviews with scientists, activists and political leaders.

As featured on CNN's Amanpour & Company and BBC Radio 4's Start the Week with Andrew Marr One of the Financial Times' best books of 2021

HOW is China's green energy push driving a hazardous mining rush in Congo?

WHY is a maverick scientist building a home for engineered mammoths in northeast Siberia?

CAN an Israeli fake meat startup make a fortune while helping to save the Amazon?

WILL Greenland's melting sea ice put its people at the centre of a global power struggle?

WHO are the entrepreneurs chasing breakthroughs in fusion power, electric cars, and technology to suck carbon from the atmosphere?

As the impacts of climate change cascade across the planet and the global economy, who is battling to survive the worst impacts - and who is chasing the most lucrative rewards?

Telling unforgettable human stories from six continents, this is an account of disaster, of promise, of frantic adaptation and relentless innovation, of hope, of survival, and of the forces that will define our future.
