Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature, and Climate Change

Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature, and Climate Change

by Elizabeth Kolbert Author

Elizabeth Kolbert's environmental classic Field Notes from a Catastrophe first developed as a groundbreaking three-part series in the New Yorker. In the years following, the situation has become increasingly dire, even as our understanding has grown. Now, Kolbert returns to the seminal book of her career, adding chapters on ocean acidification, unconventional fuels, and a Danish island that's gone carbon neutral— bringing all the text up to date and making it, again, a must-read for anyone interested in the future of our planet.This new edition is expanded into a still-concise yet richly researched and damning book about climate change: a primer on the greatest challenge facing the world today.
