    REVIEW The Last Generation How Nature Will Take Her Revenge for Climate Change PDF FREE [The Last Generation How Nature Will Take Her Revenge for Climate Change] Reading a thirteen year old book about climate change seemed counter productive but this book was somewhat different Basing its premise on that fact that the climate has always moved in fits and starts drastically changing in relatively short amounts of time not slowly as we tend to think it focuses on those tip

FREE DOWNLOAD The Last Generation How Nature Will Take Her Revenge for Climate Change 107 REVIEW The Last Generation How Nature Will Take Her Revenge for Climate Change Fred Pearce has been writing about climate change for eighteen years and the he learns the worse things look Where once scientists were concerned about gradual climate change now and of them fear we will soon be dealing with abrupt change resulting from triggering hidden tipping points Even President Bush's top climate modeler Jim Hansen warned in 2005 that we are on the precipice of climate system tipping points. 2017 updateThis book is now almost ten years old As such it contains some info and views which are now dated and about which there is now much clarityFor example the chapter on hurricanes is rather tentative about whether larger powerful storms will be a result of global warming going forward It s become a commonplace for people including scientists to say that any given storm rainfall drought whatever can be said to be caused by climate change This is changing a bit in the last couple years as scientists have come up with new ways of working probabilistically with weather features as they have changed over recent decades Basically the approach is to try to calculate how the chance of a certain type of weather event occurring has been changing as the atmosphere warms So a certain type of event might have been described decades ago as a one in 50 years event whereas currently the warmer atmosphere would make it a one in 20 years eventWhich brings up the recent 2017 hurricanes Harvey and Irma Harvey was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the US in ten years dumping as much as fifty inches of rain on parts of southeast Texas This has been described as at least for the US an unprecedented rain event which had been unimaginable until it happened Harvey has been followed only a couple weeks later by hurricane Irma the most powerful hurricane ever seen in the Atlantic with winds approaching the theoretical maximum and an 800 mile size that is almost as large as Texas As I write Irma is expected to hit the south coast of Florida within a couple days after virtually destroying a couple islands in the Caribbean already I think the book is still worth a look as an overview of a lot of issues which in 2017 have become less controversial with a consensus having formed since 2008 I wish I knew of a book which was as comprehensive as Pearce s but contained up to date information but I don t Original 2012 reviewThis is a very good survey of the different scenarios that are worrying various scientists around the world nowadays actually almost five years ago now regarding climate change There are 37 chapters grouped into eight topics with most chapters concentrating on a different one of the tipping points that could lead to significant and uite fast destabilization of the atmosphere seas climate or all threePearce does not try to give probabilities or time lines for most of these possible occurrences that would really be beyond the scope of our knowledge though some of the scientists he mentions do throw out some guesstimates But consider let s say there are only 25 items discussed here and the average probability that any one could occur in the next 50 years is 2% Well that would imply that there would be a 40% chance that at least one would occur in that span of timeWhat kind of catastrophes are discussed Three of those that I have heard discussed elsewhere not just in this book are massive release of methane from a thawing tundra the cessation of India s monsoon and the drying out of the basin One that is not even discussed in the book is the loss of the Himalayan glaciers which feed most of the major rivers in China and India and provide the water for much of China s agricultureBottom line a good survey but depressing
