About this title

Synopsis:

Imagine a world of wildly escalating temperatures, apocalyptic flooding, devastating storms and catastrophic sea levels. This might sound like a prediction for the future or the storyline of a new Hollywood blockbuster but it’s actually what occurred on earth in the past. In a day and age when worrying forecasts for future climate change are the norm, it seems hard to believe that such things happened regularly over time. Can humankind decipher the past and learn from it? As science gains new understanding of how the planet works, it’s becoming increasingly clear that no one place is disconnected from anywhere else. From the Alps to the Andes, seemingly unrelated parts of the world are connected in one way or another. By reading this book you’ll realize that we're facing challenges beyond anything our species has had to contend with before.

About the Author:

Chris Turney is a British Geologist and currently holds a Chair in Physical Geography at the University of Exeter, UK. Turney researches and teaches on past climate change and what it means for the future. He has published numerous scientific papers and magazine articles, and given frequent media interviews, thanks to his infectious enthusiasm for working out what happened when. In 2007, Turney was awarded The Sir Nicholas Shackleton Medal for outstanding young Quaternary scientist for his pioneering research into past climate change and dating the past.
