Forced optimism in a survey of global warming and climate changeWe are now at least a decade into what journalist Mark Hertsgaard terms the second era of global warming which began sometime around the turn of the 20th century As he writes The battle to prevent dangerous climate change was now over the race to survive it has begun Hertsgaard probably has as broad and deep an understanding of global warming and its conseuences in the form of climate change of any nonscientist on the planet He has been writing about the topic for than two decades and has interviewed most of the major players in climate science climate related government policy not just for this book which involved five years of travel around the world but for Earth Odyssey a widely read investigation published in 1999 that reflected seven years of travel The man knows whereof he writes Hot is the author s attempt to find a hopeful path forward through the gathering storm of climate change Throughout he ponders the life his young daughter Chiara will face in adulthood Much of Hot is written in an optimistic tone Hertsgaard explores a laundry list of policies and procedures that if widely implemented will permit humanity to forestall the extremes of climate change and to adapt to its nonetheless unavoidable conseuences Some of the practices he touts painting roofs white and planting trees in African fields for example could in fact achieve a great deal if universally employed His theme is Avoid the unmanageable manage the unavoidable Distinguishing between mitigation efforts to reduce carbon emissions and adaptation finding ways to adjust to the changing climate Hertsgaard devotes most of the book to the latter Previous writing on global warming has tended to focus on mitigation which heavily involves government and corporate policy Adaption consists largely of changing the way people and communities behave Unfortunately though the context in which he writes is not encouraging We live in a world in which massive corporations spend millions to protect their short term profits regardless of the conseuences major news media reflect the views of their corporate owners the overwhelming majority of people deny the obvious and policymakers demonstrate their affinity for the art of the possible rather than showing true leadership To a knowledgeable reader much of the optimism in Hot seems forced What it all boils down to is this We face a towering challenge Countries that today are all but addicted to fossil fuels must uit carbon within the next two to three decades Deforestation and other climate damaging activities must also be brought to a halt worldwide And even poor and emerging economies must halt almost all emissions by 2050 Yet even if we manage all this it will give us merely a two out of three chance to limit temperature rise to 2 degrees C about preindustrial levels itself an achievement of dubious merit for it will mean the lost of most of the world s coral reefs the disappearance of most of its mountain snowpacks and enough sea level rise eventually to inundate the existing coastlines on every continent The facts are disturbingly grim even if the human race somehow manages to come to grips with the existential threat of climate change and to do everything recommended by the authors of the most alarming scientific reports we are already locked into at least 30 years and possibly as many as 50 years of serious trouble Climate change will worsen existing conflicts over water supplies energy sources and weather induced migration Economic prosperity is also endangered Approximately 25 percent of the gross national product of the United States is at risk from extreme weather events according to the American Meteorological Society and the American Geophysical Union One of the greatest threats to civilization lies in our oceans Three feet of sea level rise over the next hundred years which is near the low end of what scientists now expect will pose enormous challenges Some scientists believe our civilization could experience three feet of sea level rise within the next fifty years Perhaps eually problematic is the certainty of increasing drought Much of Africa a large swath of South Asia and large portions of the United States especially California the Southwest and the Great Plains face intensifying water shortages There is no lack of horror stories available to illustrate the havoc these trends can create However over and above all the computer modeled predictions for a steady increase in global temperatures over the coming decades is a much horrific possibility the potential that some unanticipated combination of circumstances will trigger positive feedbacks that in the worst case could kick off some type of runaway greenhouse dynamics As Hertsgaard explains Unfortunately there is ample precedent for this kind of abrupt shift into climate chaos Although the human mind tends to think in gradual linear terms ice records and other historical data show that climate shifts when they occur tend to happen suddenly and exponentially Worrying about rising temperatures and their conseuences is bad enough But it s the potential of a sudden and exponential shift that keeps me awake nightsFrom wwwmalwarwickonbookscom Yohji Yamamoto (Memoirs) of the.

characters Hot By Mark Hertsgaard ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Summary Ò eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Mark Hertsgaard review Hot By Mark Hertsgaard Popular Ebook, Hot Author Mark Hertsgaard There are many interesting. Update post hurricane Sandy autumn 2012Mark Hertsgaard wrote an essay for The Nation Hurricane Sandy as Greek Tragedy which provides yet evidence of our world s slow motion train wreck The name of the hurricane provides the most poignant and realistic noteSandy is short for Cassandra the Greek mythological figure who epitomizes tragedy The gods gave Cassandra the gift of prophecy depending on which version of the story one prefers she could either see or smell the future But with this gift also came a curse Cassandra s warnings about future disasters were fated to be ignored That is the essence of this tragedy to know that a given course of action will lead to disaster but to pursue it neverthelessHertsgaard states that There are signs of hope but his threshold must be abysmally low Does he really believe that Especially in the wake of Hurricane Sandy there is no reason to continue disregarding scientists warnings about where our current path leads Of course there are plenty of reasons and he knows what they are There is plenty of money behind the push to deny this and huge portions of the American demos have passively chosen to believe there is a controversy either because the issue is tied strongly to their other ideological positions or because it is convenient to be too busy to worry about such long term problemsHertsgaard again has the wrong attitude and the wrong tone of voice This message might be a bit persuasive if it were delivered in tones of a thundering Mosaic condemnation from Mount Sinai Because he leavens his message with unwarranted optimism his message and the tragedy are both left easy to ignoreBack to my original review Mark Hertsgaard s book covers a lot of ground and I d argue that in the coming years there is no important topic that anyone could study This book is a decent start but in the end I was disappointed primarily because he was too optimisticAll of the accumulated evidence is that we are so far from any significant mitigation of global warming that it as if someone is writing the script for a very black comedy of errors But Hersgaard ends in an upbeat mood asserting that we ll do this because well because we have to The alternative is too horrendous to contemplateThe problem with that prognosis is two fold First even people that believe global warming is taking place seldom have examined how very nasty the latter half of the twentieth century will probably be Sure some cautionary descriptions have floated around but even picking a single example hides the panoramic sweep of the changes and the trauma Much like looking at the aftermath of a hurricane or tsunami through a telescope you only examine details by losing the ability to see everything elseSecond collective action is naturally slow in coming when the costs of change will undoubtedly be high Deniers have been criminal in making things worse by sowing doubt when there really is very little doubt A reasonable prediction is that people won t agree on the need for real action until much later in the game A few hundred deaths from a clutch of tornadoes here a few billion dollars in damage from hurricanes there climbing food scarcity due to floods here and droughts there it will all get shrugged off as just plain bad luck for another decade or And by that timeHertsgaard has a very well chosen framing narrative here although as other reviewers have noted he gets too bathetic especially towards the end of the book He has recently become a father and there is some cognitive dissonance between the horror story he keeps finding as he has researched this book and the warm and happy feelings he has when he looks at his young daughter He s right to worry In her anticipated lifespan she could easily witness changes that dramatically reduce any expectation she has for a pleasant lifeIt s too bad that this book hasn t told the bad side of that story Many pages were devoted to how for example a few tiny parts of the United States and other wealthy countries have made baby steps towards adaptation And pages turn to how difficult it is to prepare But while he notes out that floods kill thousands drought can kill millions but he doesn t go much deeper Drought is potentially a problem in so many parts of the world that he should probably warn about tens of millions of deaths And once people start seeing that do we really expect them to peacefully beg for help Water wars have been a hot topic of study in international relations for many years now where are the interviews regarding that With climate change triggering food scarcity these problems are likely to cascade upon one anotherThe book s single instance of humor is inadeuately dark You know the joke don t you Under climate change the future is definitely going to be wetter Or drier Unless it s both I think the only honest conclusion is that the future is definitely going to be wetter drier and much deadlier Also see the New York Times review Poisoning the Well February 4 2011 Image from ueensland 2010 2011 flood Image from Thailand s 2011 flood Image from Hurricane Sandy I guess I like the juxtaposition of one of the causes of climate change and one of the effects
