  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 December #2
    After traveling the world to places undergoing rapid and severe destruction of ecosystems due to human actions, Jamail adopted the term "climate disruption" as more accurate than "climate change." Winner of the Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism, Jamail covered the war in Iraq; then, as an ardent mountaineer witnessing the rapid erosion of glaciers in Alaska, he turned to environmental reporting. Understanding that only those intimate with nature fully perceive the significance of the warming of the atmosphere and oceans and the dire and cascading consequences, Jamail speaks with longtime residents and scientists in besieged regions from the Arctic to the Amazon to Pacific islands. Jamail visits endangered coral reefs, degraded forests, thawing permafrost, and the flooding streets of Miami. He precisely explains how the current decimation "could bring down the entire miracle of existence as we have known it." Matching awe for the majestic intricacy and beauty of nature with exacting and alarming dispatches, Jamail calls on us to respect facts, honor life, and recognize that we are facing increasingly tragic disruptions and loss. Enlightening, heartbreaking, and necessary. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
