|Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know®|
by Joseph Romm (Author)
Climate change will have a bigger impact on humanity than the Internet has had.

In June 2015, the Pope declared that action on climate change is a moral issue.

|The Collapse of Western Civilization: A View from the Future|
by Naomi Oreskes (Author), Erik Conway (Author)
The year is 2393, and the world is almost unrecognizable. Clear warnings of climate catastrophe went ignored for decades, leading to soaring temperatures, rising sea levels, widespread drought and―finally―the disaster now known as the Great Collapse of 2093, when the disintegration of the West Antarctica Ice Sheet led to mass migration and a complete reshuffling of the global order. Writing from the Second People's Republic of China on the 300th anniversary of the Great Collapse, a...
