Forecast: The Consequences of Climate Change, from the Amazon to the Arctic, from Darfur to Napa Valley, by Stephen Faris

Oh god we're all doomed.
Excellent but wildly depressing book about drought, warfare, disease, melting permafrost, dying Amazon, Gulf Coast disasters, sea level rise, and bad wine.
I am very into the topic of our impending DOOM, but this was a downer even for me.

Thanks for the tip, I'll have to check it out. All these catastrophic prediction books and articles are very interesting. If you combine them all together they don't make much sense but you can take one thing out of it all. The world is sure changing a lot and not necessarily towards better.

Take care, Elli
