From the website:
“Much of what you’ve been told about climate disruption are myths
The most comprehensive book on climate disruption, The Climate Pandemic reveals that, unlike what you've been told:
Current plans to limit global heating will not avoid climate catastrophe.
Renewable energy will not offer a major clean energy source.
Decarbonizing our energy system is a delusion.
The human species will not ultimately survive the unrelenting onslaught of climate disruption.
The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has created a massive health and economic catastrophe that will reverberate throughout society for many years. However, society will recover.
In tragic contrast, we are in the midst of an infinitely more serious ‘climate pandemic.’ Unlike the viral pandemic, it is never-ending. People will not become immune to its hazards. Nor will there be the equivalent of vaccines or drugs to treat it. In fact, the climate pandemic will steadily worsen, even threatening extinction, unless we launch a global political, economic, and technological revolution in our carbon-dependent energy system.
The Climate Pandemic offers profound new insights into the science, technology, politics, economics, and psychology that underlie the existential crisis that we face.
The Climate Pandemic explores:
The mechanisms underlying climate-driven heat waves, megadroughts, wildfires, floods, and superstorms
The human impacts of climate disruption: increased toxicity and disease, famine, migration, war, and societal collapse
The psychological barriers that have prevented people from understanding and acting to mitigate climate disruption
How climate “de-nihilists” have sabotaged solutions
Why the media, scientists, environmentalists, corporations, and politicians have failed to help mitigate climate disruption
How the Paris agreement, renewable energy, carbon capture, geoengineering, and nuclear power are unrealistic panaceas
The Climate Pandemic includes an extensive bibliography of references on climate disruption, with more than 1,700 hyperlinked entries. These include peer-reviewed scientific papers, books, and reports from government and international agencies and scientific associations.”
