Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth

Mark Hertsgaard discusses why the truth about climate change didn’t hit home until he became a father, although he’s investigated global warming for the New Yorker, Time, Vanity Fair, and the Nation. In Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth, he combines reporting from around the world with reflections on his daughter’s future. He looks at what we should expect in the next five decades: Chicago’s climate transformed to resemble Houston’s, shrinking water supplies and crop yields, mega-storms and rising sea-levels.
