"Pearce is no idle Jeremiah...his book signals a shift of tone in the popular debate... The Last Generation makes you feel that we know enough now to conceive of the problems ahead. And anticipating a problem is half way to being able to do something about it." (James Flint The Daily Telegraph 20060701)
"This is the most frightening book that I have ever read...everyone should read this book to find out what is going wrong with the world." (John Gribbin The Independent 20060731)
"One of Britain's finest science writers. He is a sceptic of the best sort, saying nothing until he has seen the truth of it for himself." (Richard Girling The Sunday Times 20060625)
"A crystal clear wake-up call from one of the finest science writers in the world." ( Dr Jeremy Leggett )
"Apocalyptic in its vision, but never scare-mongering, The Last Generation superbly explains and dramatizes both the causes and the consequences of climate change. One reads it both gripped, and deeply alarmed." ( Robert Macfarlane )
'Engaging, lucid and balanced...This is a powerful book about the most important event in human history. Read it.'
PROFESSOR LORD MAY, OXFORD UNIVERSITY
Since the last ice age, almost 13,000 years ago, human beings have prospered in a stable, predictable climate. But our generation is the last to be so blessed. In THE LAST GENERATION Fred Pearce lays bare the terrifying prognosis for our planet. Climate change from now on will not be gradual - nature doesn't do gradual change. In the past, Europe's climate has switched from Arctic to tropical in three to five years. It can happen again. So forget what environmentalists have told you about nature being a helpless victim of human excess. The truth is the opposite. She is a wild and resourceful beast given to fits of rage. And now that we are provoking her beyond endurance, she is starting to seek her revenge.
'Do we really need another book telling us that doom is imminent? In this case, the answer has to be yes.'
James Flint, DAILY TELEGRAPH
