Storms of My Grandchildren
NY, Bloomsbury, (2009). The first book by Hansen, who has been trying to get the world's attention on global warming and climate change since the 1980s, even testifying before Congress in 1988. Coming two decades later, this book is subtitled, "The Truth about the Coming Climate Catastrophe and Our Last Change to Save Humanity." Hansen appeared on 60 Minutes in October, 2020, saying that as bad as things are now (wildfires, flooding, hurricanes), the worst consequences will appear with the permanent changes -- rising sea levels and mass extinctions -- and with the ultimate damage dependent on how abruptly we can stop increasing the warmth of our planet. This copy is inscribed by Hansen. Laid in is a ticket to Hansen's 2010 lecture at the Chabot Space & Science Center. Fine in a fine dust jacket. [#034765] SOLD
