But don’t do what I did which is read it in bed before going to stehpen. As their ancient ice buffers vanish, Arctic coastlines are eroding; parts of Alaska are receding at 14 metres 45 feet a year.

Which is why he has no faith in us changing our behaviour. The amount of food we produce is almost entirely dependent upon phosphate-based fertilizers. There are now seven billion of us. Arctic ice floats on water and when it melts it does not raise sea levels by a measurable amount. The book does indeed often read like a script, or maybe as the notes to accompany his previous lecture, with just a few lines on the top of each page.

Previous post Next post. Methane emissions in the Arctic have been observed before and are explained by bacterial activity. It made me doubt so many of my beliefs in life.

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The book is beautiful.

And the design of the book is pleasing – just one or two horrific facts per page to increase their impact. It’s that sort of An Inconvenient Truth thing.

Nowhere does he tell us that this molecule has been used for years and that when calculations have been done, the carbon benefit of the renewable electricity generated by the panel dwarfs the global warming impact of the nitrogen biolion used.

The essential gift book for any pet lover – real-life tales of devoted dogs, rebellious cats and other unforgettable four-legged friends. No trivia or quizzes yet. But he exaggerates, as in so many other instances, the current seriousness of the issue. It is is a scary picture and it will be here in our children’s life time, if not ours.

It is a tribute to the clarity of his message that, as a result, anyone not immediately expecting to meet their maker, and certainly anyone with young children, will start thinking about the need to build an ark. It’s written as someone’s power point presentation and stuck into Last week Dh and I were watching the news and had a conversation that we both agree on So, what’s to be done?

Want to Read saving…. He’s also worried about water availability.

I guess that has got nothing to do with the fact that he works for microsoft. This is never mentioned, let alone discussed by Emmott. I read this in preparation for a class I will be teaching on fashion sustainability and it served to highlight that environm My quick ‘just-read-it-gut-reaction’ review is as follows: Earth and all the hot topics.

10 Billion, by Stephen Emmott, review

A rise in celsius degrees,probably more, sgephen mean global temperatures seems inevitable The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change,whose emmtt it has been for twenty years to ensure stabilice greenhouse gases on earths athmosfere: There are scores and scores of errors and exaggerations in this short book. The author does not believe that any technological fix is on the horizon; that we – even many scientists physicists at CERN, for example – do not take the problem seriously enough, and that we – us – are the problem, and 10 billion of us just makes the problem that much worse.

If you think food and gas is expensive now, you won’t believe what’s in store for us. I just sat here for an hour and read the entire thing in one go. This is the most phenomenal, hard hitting, profound books I’ve read in a very long time. The government has issued new oil and gas licences to companies seeking to drill in the North Sea, in what John Hayes, the energy minister, described as a “bonanza” for the oil industry.


Not necessarily angry which I would have expected or forgiven, but a tone of a scientist who has pretty much given up.

Time to model all life on Earth”. It informs, unsettles, provokes. Ten Billion is a quick read. Tis book is written by a scientist whoe lab is at the forefront of research into complex natural systems.

Sep 10, 74 Minutes. A staggeringly depressing book – litres of water to make a hamburger? In a review published in The Guardian, John Gray describes the book as “short, highly biolion and vividly illustrated,” offering “compelling evidence that ‘entire global ecosystems are not only capable of suffering a catastrophic tipping point, but are already approaching such a transition. The cataclysm is always to come, while the behaviour fuelling that apparently future fallout — outrageous consumption — is, for those of us doing the consuming, very present, and very fun.

That said, the worst thing we can continue to do —globally—is have children at the current rate. The meat industry is resposable of 50 percent of greenhouse gases emisions and rainforest destruction especially in Amazonas to plant soy to feed herds As our numbers continue to grow we continue to increase our need of far more cereals,far more land,far more transportation,far more water,far more energy mainly of fossil fuels speeding the global warming.
