Gwynne Dyer has a new book out. It’s an alarming book that foresees the catastrophic outcomes should CO2 emissions rise and the climate increase. The book outlines fascinating and sometimes scary scenarios that see unrest and conflict, wars and natural disasters, rising sea levels and dwindling resources, political extremism and famine. More than providing an uncomfortable glimpse into the future, it also provides some hope, what we can do now, and more importantly what our leaders can do. The book is Climate Wars. It is published by Random House and retails for $34.95.
