Pressestimmen

Regret, Oreskes and Conway argue, is an equal-opportunity employer. Yes, climate change will be a nightmare for environmentalists. But global warming also threatens free marketeers, because unabated, it guarantees big government intervention. And that's the great service of this short but brilliant parable: it creates bipartisan empathy for our future selves. From that gift, perhaps we can summon the will to act today.--Auden Schendler, Vice President, Sustainability, Aspen Skiing Company

...a chilling view of what our history could be. Ignore it and it becomes more likely. Read this book, heed its warning, and perhaps we can avoid its dire predictions.--Timothy Wirth, Vice Chairman, United Nations FoundationFormer US Senator and Member, US House of Representatives

Provocative and grimly fascinating, " The Collapse of Western Civilization" offers a glimpse into a future that, with farsighted leadership, still might be avoided. It should be required reading for anyone who works--or hopes to--in Washington.--Elizabeth Kolbert, author of "The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History"

Oreskes and Conway's startling and all-too-plausible history of the century to come is in the spirit of George Orwell and Aldous Huxley and all the writers who have turned to prophecy in the attempt to ward off an oncoming disaster. Witty in its details and disturbing in its plausibility, this is an account of the Long Emergency we're entering that you will not soon forget.--Kim Stanley Robinson, author of "Shaman, 2312, Science In the Capital, "and the "Mars "trilogy

A chilling view of what our history could be. Ignore it and it becomes more likely. Read this book, heed its warning, and perhaps we can avoid its dire predictions.--Timothy Wirth, vice chairman, United Nations Foundation, and former U.S. Senator and Member, U.S. House of Representatives

A much-needed antidote to the "AGENDA 21" nonsense promulgated by Glenn Beck and the far right, Oreskes and Conway provide us with a glimpse of the dystopian future we may ACTUALLY face should we fail to heed the warning of the world's scientists regarding the looming climate change crisis.--Michael E. Mann, director, Penn State Earth System Science Center, and author of "The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines"

Provocative and grimly fascinating, "The Collapse of Western Civilization" offers a glimpse into a future that, with farsighted leadership, still might be avoided. It should be required reading for anyone who works--or hopes to--in Washington.--Elizabeth Kolbert, author of "The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History"

The scenario portrayed in this valuable little book is scarily possible. It would be apt if readers took action to keep it from, you know, "happening."--Bill McKibben, founder 350.org

"The Collapse of Western Civilization" illustrates the potential dangers from climate change, which can help readers think more clearly about the risk management choices society faces. The book may also encourage scientists to reflect on their role in society. If it helps scientists engage more effectively with the public by focusing on the key strengths of science, the book could help improve a flawed political system and enhance the potential for all branches of science to further benefit society.--Paul A. T. Higgins"Issues in Science and Technology" (01/01/2016)

A much-needed antidote to the "AGENDA 21" nonsense promulgated by Glenn Beck and the far right, Oreskes and Conway provide us with a glimpse of the dystopian future we may ACTUALLY face should we fail to heed the warning of the world's scientists regarding the looming climate change crisis.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Naomi Oreskes is professor of the history of science and affiliated professor of Earth and planetary sciences at Harvard University. Her 2004 essay "The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change," cited by Al Gore in An Inconvenient Truth (2006), led to op-ed pieces in the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the San Francisco Chronicle, and to Congressional testimony in the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. With Erik Conway, she is the author of Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke to Global Warming.



Erik M. Conway is a historian of science and technology employed by the California Institute of Technology. He recently received a NASA History award for "path-breaking contributions to space history, ranging from aeronautics to Earth and space sciences," and an AIAA History Manuscript Award for his fourth book, Atmospheric Science at NASA: A History.
