A fresh take on climate change by a renowned journalist driven to protect his daughter, your kids, and the next generation who'll inherit the problemFor twenty years, Mark Hertsgaard has investigated global warming for outlets including the New Yorker, NPR,Time, Vanity Fair,and theNation.But the full truth did not hit home until he became a father and, soon thereafter, learned that climate change had already arriveda century earlier than forecastwith impacts bound to worsen for decades to come. Hertsgaard's daughter Chiara, now five years old, is part of what he has dubbed "Generation Hot"--the two billion young people worldwide who will spend the rest of their lives coping with mounting climate disruption. HOTis a father's cry against climate change, but most of the book focuses on solutions, offering a deeply reported blueprint for how all of usas parents, communities, companies and countriescan navigate this unavoidable new era. Combining reporting from across the nation and around the world with personal reflections on his daughter's future, Hertsgaard provides "pictures" of what is expected over the next fifty years: Chicago's climate transformed to resemble Houston's; dwindling water supplies and crop yields at home and abroad; the redesign of New York and other cities against mega-storms and sea-level rise. Above all, he shows who is taking wise, creative precautions. For in the end, HOTis a book about how we'll survive.
