Una vez hemos reconocido que nuestro mundo llega a su fin, ¿qué podemos hacer? Este sobrecogedor relato de cómo estamos precipitando el planeta hacia su Armagedón nos descubre amenazas inimaginables hasta en nuestras peores pesadillas. Es peor, mucho peor, de lo que imaginas. Hoy, la subida del nivel del mar es una causa de alarma generalizada entre aquellos que ya han abandonado el sueño pernicioso de que el calentamiento global es un mito. Sin embargo, no es ni siquiera la punta del gigantesco iceberg de horrores inimaginables que amenazan la vida en la Tierra: incendios, huracanes, sequías, inundaciones... Todas estas inquietantes manifestaciones del cambio climático, ya recurrentes para millones de personas, son solo un adelanto de lo que está por llegar: hambrunas, plagas, un aire irrespirable, migraciones cada vez más masivas, el colapso económico e incluso conflictos armados globales. Con una precisión y una lucidez que estremecen, David Wallace-Wells construye el relato caleidoscópico de las consecuencias que tendrá, tan solo dentro de una generación, nuestra impasibilidad ante la crisis ecológica. Incidiendo con crudeza en cómo hemos fracasado al imaginar y, ante todo, promulgar un mejor porvenir, El planeta inhóspito nos transporta a un futuro inminente y nos sirve la reflexión definitiva de cómo hemos devastado nuestro propio hogar; todo ello en clave de una ferviente y aún más apremiante llamada al cambio. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • "The Uninhabitable Earth hits you like a comet, with an overflow of insanely lyrical prose about our pending Armageddon."-Andrew Solomon, author of The Noonday Demon With a new afterword It is worse, much worse, than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible-food shortages, refugee emergencies, climate wars and economic devastation. An "epoch-defining book" (The Guardian) and "this generation's Silent Spring" (The Washington Post), The Uninhabitable Earth is both a travelogue of the near future and a meditation on how that future will look to those living through it-the ways that warming promises to transform global politics, the meaning of technology and nature in the modern world, the sustainability of capitalism and the trajectory of human progress. The Uninhabitable Earth is also an impassioned call to action. For just as the world was brought to the brink of catastrophe within the span of a lifetime, the responsibility to avoid it now belongs to a single generation-today's. Praise for The Uninhabitable Earth "The Uninhabitable Earth is the most terrifying book I have ever read. Its subject is climate change, and its method is scientific, but its mode is Old Testament. The book is a meticulously documented, white-knuckled tour through the cascading catastrophes that will soon engulf our warming planet."-Farhad Manjoo, The New York Times "Riveting. . . . Some readers will find Mr. Wallace-Wells's outline of possible futures alarmist. He is indeed alarmed. You should be, too."-The Economist "Potent and evocative. . . . Wallace-Wells has resolved to offer something other than the standard narrative of climate change. . . . He avoids the 'eerily banal language of climatology' in favor of lush, rolling prose."-Jennifer Szalai, The New York Times "The book has potential to be this generation's Silent Spring."-The Washington Post "The Uninhabitable Earth, which has become a best seller, taps into the underlying emotion of the day: fear. . . . I encourage people to read this book."-Alan Weisman, The New York Review of Books
