Public media is awash with the deteriorating state of our planet. Every new climate report shows a worse scenario than the one before, and the prophesized outcome is always the same – worldwide disaster.
In A Guide to the Climate Apocalypse, Vítězslav Kremlík delivers a refreshing and objective analysis of the history and science behind climate change. Books about climate change frequently endorse a narrow, often malicious angle of total indoctrination or abject denial of the official story. Kremlík employs a direct and detailed critique of not only the studies that have led to our current understanding of large-scale changes in the weather, but also the political biases and motives behind global action taken in response to it.
Proceed step-by-step through the history of how we came to understand everything we currently do about climate change, including natural climate cycles, modern carbon footprints and pollution, periods of extreme weather, ocean acidification, biofuels, climate doomsayers, hockey stick graphs, and our dear old friend Al Gore.
Kremlík’s informative guide offers an expert-backed new perspective on the history and politics of our understanding of climate change and the agendas behind those who speak most vocally on it or enforce policies that affect us all. With well-researched and cited real-world findings and examples, it calls all of us to wake up to an accurate and educated view of what is and has been happening to our planet – and what we ought or ought not to do about it.
