#1 New York Times Bestseller

The climate columnist for New York magazine puts plainly the far-reaching, world-changing repercussions of climate change—from the scientific to the political to the sociological.

As deeply researched as it is accessible, The Uninhabitable Earth delves deep into both the science and the humanities of climate change. In it, Wallace-Wells eschews the partisan debate that has long colored the issue in favor of indisputable facts, and brings into stark relief the way in which the world will be remade by warming, transforming our politics, our culture, our relationship to technology, and our sense of history.

Like An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring before it, The Uninhabitable Earth is both a meditation on the devastation we have brought upon ourselves and an impassioned call to action.

The Uninhabitable Earth is the most terrifying book I have ever read. Its subject is climate change, and its method is scientific, but its mode is Old Testament. The book is a meticulously documented, white-knuckled tour through the cascading catastrophes that will soon engulf our warming planet.” —Farhad Manjoo, The New York Times
