Relevant and timely information on a global catastrophe in the making.
The imminent threat of global warming and climate change has been lurking for the past decades. Many scientists have raised the alarm on this issue, some of whom have resorted to taking extreme measures in letting governments and people around the world know that what’s being done is not enough.
In this seminal book by author Duncan G. Ewing, readers are given relevant and timely information on how global warming has affected our planet and what will happen in the future if we don’t act now. He gives readers incisive yet apt information as to what global warming is and its causes. Providing a more in-depth view on the interplay between global warming and temperature trends as well as its subsequent effects on climate change, he raises caution on what everyone will be facing in the not-so-distant future.
Touching on the harrowing and very much felt effects of global warming, such as the catastrophic hurricanes, cyclones, and heavy rains affecting various cities and towns, the surprising droughts and heatwaves experienced by the supposedly cooler places, and the devastating winter arctic outbreaks that disrupt daily lives, Global Warming: A Real Threat takes its readers in an immersive ride on this phenomenon that is affecting all forms of life here on Earth. With much emphasis on the author’s personal experiences of the effects of global warming in his hometown British Columbia, Canada, the book offers insights into how this seemingly detached phenomenon can impact an ordinary person’s life tremendously.
The author also shares the temperature changes that the Earth has gone through in the past, with some background information on the planet’s warm and cold periods and the ups and downs of the Earth’s temperature. After analyzing the effects of the past changes, he proffers the extinction of species and the possibility of having another ice age.
Looking into the future, Ewing discusses what could happen half a century from now and cautions of the dire reality humans will be affronted with if nothing is done to combat the unprecedented rising of temperatures. With global warming reaching its pinnacle point at around 2070, mainly due to the greenhouse effect if it’s not curbed within manageable levels, the possibility of the world being too hot to sustain life and the recurrence of extinction loom. Ewing also shares which species will be severely affected by the changes in the earth’s temperature. Make no mistake, his primary warning of how the imminent threat of global warming can subsequently affect sustaining all forms of life on the planet is real.
With fervent calls on governments and humans from all over the world to act now before it’s too late, he then puts much thought into how we as a species can adapt to the changes and offers solutions that can help alleviate the severity of the situation. Specifically, he itemizes what can be immediately done in order to slow down the warming of our planet. With his faith in humans’ capacity to learn and adapt intact, the author delves into what we still have the capacity to do to stop the possible ominous future from occurring.
At once timely and personal, Global Warming: A Threat is an engaging read that will give light to our current predicament and offers solutions that might just make things easier.
