Summary
While reporting from Darfur, journalist Faris discovered that climate change was at the root of that conflict, and began to wonder what current and impending--and largely unanticipated--crises such changes have in store for the world. Here, he provides some answers. Global warming will spur the spread of many diseases. The warming world will shift huge populations and potentially redraw political alliances around the globe, driving environmentalists into the hands of anti-immigrant groups. America's coasts are already more difficult places to live as increasing insurance rates make them prohibitively expensive. Crops will fail in previously lush places and thrive in some formerly barren zones, altering huge industries and remaking traditions. Water scarcity in India and Pakistan have the potential to inflame the conflict in Kashmir to unprecedented. Told through narratives of current, past, and future events, this is an eye-opening account of this most urgent issue.--From publisher description
