Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Geologist James Lawrence Powell's first Kindle Single --framed as "An Oral History of the Great Warming"--was a fictional novella set in 2084. Though still concerned with global warming, Rough Winds instead looks squarely at the past, the very recent past, and it sticks to the facts: namely heat, drought, fire, rain, snow, floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes. Powell opens with a searing catalog of the record-breaking North American summer heat wave of 2011, but he's just getting warmed up. What follows is a blistering array of data, pocked with occasional vignettes that portray the enormous suffering and damage that global climate change is kindling. In laboriously documenting both the specifics and the scale of our habitat's incendiary fury, Powell's explicit goal is to ignite action, but what it sometimes lacks in argumentative rigor, Rough Winds more than makes up for in detail and passion. "Only a fool," Powell insists, "waits to see the flames before trying to buy fire insurance." --Jason Kirk
