"Gwynne Dyer is one of the few who are both courageous enough to tell the unvarnished truth, and have the background to understand, not misrepresent the inputs. This book does a superb job of detailing the emerging realities of Climate/Energy. These realities are not pretty." --Dennis Bushnell, Chief Scientist at NASA
"This is a truly important and timely book. Gwynne Dyer has made the best and most plausible set of guesses I have yet seen about the human consequences of climate change, of how drought and heat may ignite wars, even nuclear wars, around the globe." --James Lovelock, award-winning scientist, inventor, and originator of the "Gaia" hypothesis
"The current debate on climate change is mostly on its future effects, but few are brave enough to work out what they might be. Here is a lively, alarming and even entertaining attempt to look ahead. Water and war have always been associated. We need hope as well as good sense in looking at the future. Here it is." --Sir Crispin Tickell, former Chairman of both the Board of the Climate Institute of Washington DC and the International Institute for Environment and Development
"Anyone still complacent about climate change will find Climate Wars instructive and disturbing. These articulate insights into climate geopolitics by Gwynne Dyer are an important tool for understanding why the climate challenge is big, hard, and vital to human survival -- yet soluble if we pay attention now." --Amory B. Lovins, Time magazine's Hero of the Environment, author of Capitalism as if the World Matters, and Chairman & Chief Scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute
"Climate Wars: The Fight for Survival as the World Overheats has been called 'a truly important and timely book,' but I'd go further. I'll say this may be the most important book you'll read this year." --Mickey Z, planet green
"[Dyer] eloquently explores the `grim detail' of how governments will grapple with a challenge unprecedented since before there were governments. You won't find this stuff in any IPCC report... It makes for a good read." -- New Scientist
"Frightening yet essential reading." -- Library Journal
"Climate Wars: The Fight for Survival as the World Overheats has been called 'a truly important and timely book,' but I'd go further.
