Description

Elizabeth Kolbert’s environmental classic Field Notes from a Catastrophe first developed as a groundbreaking, National Magazine Award–winning three-part series in the New Yorker. Kolbert expanded those pieces into a still-concise yet richly researched and damning book about climate change: a primer on the greatest challenge facing the world today.

In the years since, the situation has become increasingly dire, even as our understanding has grown. Now, Kolbert returns to the seminal book of her career, adding a new author’s note, afterword, and three chapters—on ocean acidification, unconventional fuels, and a Danish island that’s gone carbon neutral— bringing all the text up to date and making it, again, a must-read for anyone interested in the future of our planet.
