Early Warming: Crisis and Response in the Climate Changed North
For most of us, global warming is an abstract problem, the effects of which remain safely distant from day-to-day life. In Early Warming, global warming gets a human face. Lord looks at communities in the North, where global warming is amplified and climate change effects are immediate. Every day, these people witness the very real effects of global warming and respond with both urgency and creativity.
This beautifully written and measured narrative, which takes us deep into regions where people face life-threatening change, also demonstrates impressive conservation ethics and adaptive capacities. Underpinned by Lord’s long acquaintance with the North and backed with scientific and political sophistication, Early Warming brings the challenges awaiting all of us into ice-water clarity.
