This New York Times bestseller is a gripping travelogue of our near future: "It is worse, much worse, than you think." In his much anticipated book, Wallace-Wells brings into focus the impending food and water shortages, rising sea levels displacing tens of millions of people, and the real danger of much of the planet becoming inhospitable to life. He points to the role of the reigning economic and political structures in this crisis. And he shows that the responsibility to act and avoid catastrophe falls on a single generation.
"The Uninhabitable Earth hits you like a comet"--Andrew Solomon
David Wallace-Wells is deputy editor of New York magazine.
