The groundbreaking number one international bestseller and "one of the most important books of this young century" (David Suzuki)

Climate change is real, and it will affect all of us. From desertification to rising ocean levels, from killer storms to wildlife extinction, we're already seeing the effects of human activity on the most sensitive part of the global ecosystem.
