It is extremely rare to come across a new message for the world, one that holds the power to not only change the world, but SAVE THE WORLD! As the title "Climageddon" suggests Lawrence Wollersheim has a prophetic message that shines a greater and clearer light than any other on climate change and its impending power to create the end of the world: destroy all life as we know it on earth. This message has grown to become more than simply an inconvenient truth, it is THE TRUTH that the world doesn't want to hear because it prefers denial, but at some point very soon must wake up to. At some point in time, hopefully not too late, humanity needs to ask the question of itself, "How do we define intelligence when we are killing ourselves and our host planet and still don't even give a damn?"
Climageddon breaks down the complex science into basic, easy to understand building blocks to explain in language that everybody can understand:
1. What exactly climate change is;
2. The size of the threat that climate change poses to our civilization, to humanity and all life on earth;
3. A whole new timeframe that we have before it becomes too late to save the world from an extinction level event (we are already witnessing the beginning of the 6th mass extinction of life on earth) .
It's the new timeframe that is the major revolutionary message in Climageddon. Lawrence proves beyond all doubt that the current timeframe to solve the climate change challenge is not 2100, as the world currently believes based upon the IPCC models used by the world's governments and policy makers to come up with the 2015 Paris Climate Accord. Instead, it is 2050! He proves that the IPCC models are fundamentally flawed by:
1. Being equally subjective political and economic spin as objective science;
2. Missing the committed carbon (baked-in carbon) measurements;
3. Missing the basic effects of tipping points that are a fundamental part of all physical law.
Climageddon goes on to provide some answers to what needs to be done, but it's core message is to wake up the world to the true timeline we have to save the world from climate change: Climageddon. This is arguably the greatest threat and challenge the world has ever faced and yet the world is currently blind to it and sleep walking its way past the point of no return.
Climate change needs to be the conversation we are having in our schools, universities, homes and businesses. Only then will our politicians begin to listen. Climageddon is the book that makes climate change the world's great and immediate priority by stating that we are in arguably the greatest global state of emergency in history and yet remain asleep to it.
Since denial is humanity's current response, the easy and common path to be taken, it'll be left to those of the highest morality and courage to lead the way. Climagaddon is climate change's scripture for those who wish to be part of the solution, not the part of the problem. Saving the world is no easy task, that's for sure, but then heroes are made from such callings and the time in history has come again for heroes to rise!
