Review

NATIONAL BESTSELLER
 
“This is a truly important and timely book. No one, not even the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, really knows what the world climate will be ten years from now, but we and our governments have to make intelligent guesses. Gwynne Dyer has made the best and most plausible set of guesses I have yet seen about the human consequences of climate change, of how drought and heat may ignite wars, even nuclear wars, around the globe.” James Lovelock, award-winning scientist, inventor, and originator of the Gaia hypothesis
 
“Gwynne Dyer is one of the few who are both courageous enough to tell the unvarnished truth, and have the background to understand, not misrepresent the inputs. This book does a superb job of detailing the merging realities of climate/energy. These realities are not pretty.” Dennis Bushnell, chief scientist, NASA Langley
 
“Anyone still complacent about climate change will find Climate Wars instructive and disturbing. These articulate insights into climate geopolitics by Gwynne Dyer are an important tool for understanding why the climate challenge is big, hard, and vital to human survival — yet soluble if we pay attention now.” Amory B. Lovins, chairman and chief scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute
 
“The current debate on climate change is mostly on its future effects, but few are brave enough to work out what they might be. Here is a lovely, alarming and even entertaining attempt to look ahead. Water and war have always been associated. We need hope as well as good sense in looking at the future. Here it is.” Sir Crispin Tickell, diplomat, environmentalist, and director of the Policy Foresight Programme at the James Martin School at Oxford University
 
“Well written and well argued, crammed with impressive interview material and wonderful personal vignettes.” Ottawa Citizen --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
