Race for Tomorrow. Survival, Innovation and Profit on the Front Lines of the Climate Crisis

Рейтинг: 
In this extraordinary journey through twenty-six countries, Simon Mundy meets the people on the front lines of the climate crisis, showing how the struggle to respond is already reshaping the modern world - shattering communities, shaking up global business, and propelling a groundbreaking wave of cutting-edge innovation. How is China's green energy push driving a hazardous mining rush in Congo? Why is a maverick scientist building a home for engineered mammoths in northeast Siberia? Can an Israeli fake meat startup make a fortune while helping to save the Amazon? Will Greenland's melting sea ice put 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 across the planet and the global economy, who is battling to survive the worst impacts - and who is chasing the most lucrative rewards? Telling unforgettable human stories from six continents, 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.
