NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New Yorker • The New York Times Book Review • Time • NPR • The Economist • The Paris Review• Toronto Star • GQ • The Times Literary Supplement • The New York Public Library • Kirkus Reviews

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.

 

此書被評為年度最佳書之一,由《紐約客》•《紐約時報書評》•《時代雜誌》•《NPR》•《經濟學家》•《巴黎評論》•《多倫多之星》•《GQ》•《時代文學增刊》•《紐​​約公共圖書館》•《柯克斯評論》推薦。
 
比你想的更糟,糟透了。如果您對全球暖化的憂慮是由於海平面上升的恐懼所造成的,那您對可能發生的恐怖事件還摸不到邊,例如糧食短缺,難民緊急情況,氣候戰爭和經濟破壞。
 
《無人居住的地球》是一本“劃時代的書”(《衛報》)和“這一代人的寂靜春天”(《華盛頓郵報》),既是對不久的將來的旅遊紀錄,又是對未來生活的冥想:暖化有望改變全球政治,現代世界科技和自然的意義,資本主義的可持續性以及人類進步的軌跡。
 
不可居住的地球也是行動的熱情號召。就如同世界在整個生命週期中瀕臨滅頂之災一樣,如今,避免發生這種災難的責任屬於這一代人。
