Race for Tomorrow: Survival, Innovation and Profit on the Front Lines of the Climate Crisis [9780008394295]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Climate change isn't just transforming our physical environment, it's permanently shifting the landscape of energy, farming, technology and business. It's eroding ancient ways of life, shaking up global finance and driving a historic new wave of mass migration.

In this extraordinary journey across twenty-six countries, Simon Mundy meets the people embroiled in a race that is already reshaping the modern world.

WHY is a maverick scientist building a home for engineered mammoths in northeast Siberia?

HOW is China's green energy push driving a hazardous mining rush in Congo?

COULD an Israeli fake meat startup make a fortune while helping to save the Amazon?

HOW is Greenland's melting sea ice putting its people at the centre of a global power struggle?

WHO are the entrepreneurs chasing breakthroughs in fusion power, electric cars, and technology to suck carbon from the atmosphere?

As the impacts of climate change cascade through the planet and the global economy, who is battling to survive the worst impacts - and who is chasing the most lucrative rewards?

Filled with richly reported human stories from every inhabited continent, this is an account of disaster, of promise, of frantic adaptation and relentless innovation, of hope, of survival, and of the forces that will define our future.
