The Uninhabitable Earth (2019) is a terrifying rundown of the horrors which await in an ever-warming world. With poetic brilliance, Wallace-Wells draws from the latest research in climate science to give us an elegant final warning. Runaway wildfires, submerged cities, polluted air and global pandemics – these and other climate-induced catastrophes not only await in the very near future but in some cases have already arrived.
David Wallace-Wells is a columnist and deputy editor at New York magazine. He is also a national fellow at New America, a think tank focused on public policy issues ranging from health and gender to the environment.
