According to American author David Wallace-Wells, there is a jarring gap between academic research and how climate change is represented in the media.
His new book, worryingly titled, ‘The Uninhabitable Earth’ is a warning that simply more can and must be done.
In a wide-ranging interview with ITV News Science Editor Tom Clarke, Wallace-Wells describes how he became a “quasi-activist” during his research; how an alarmist approach can be effective; the damning failure of the Paris Agreement and how China could play a key role in reducing global warming.

"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
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. In California, wildfires now rage year-round, destroying thousands of homes. Across the US, “500-year” storms pummel communities month after month, and floods displace tens of millions annually.
This is only a preview of the changes to come. And they are coming fast. Without a revolution in how billions of humans conduct their lives, parts of the Earth could become close to uninhabitable, and other parts horrifically inhospitable, as soon as the end of this century.
In his travelogue of our near future, David Wallace-Wells brings into stark relief the climate troubles that await—food shortages, refugee emergencies, and other crises that will reshape the globe. But the world will be remade by warming in more profound ways as well, transforming our politics, our culture, our relationship to technology, and our sense of history. It will be all-encompassing, shaping and distorting nearly every aspect of human life as it is lived today.
Like An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring before it, The Uninhabitable Earth is both a meditation on the devastation we have brought upon ourselves and 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.

It’s a shove off the fence post and a call to action--The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming will not be satisfied until barriers to understanding climate change are obliterated. David Wallace-Wells taps into our collective survival instinct by challenging our individual roles in this all-encompassing issue.

- Editorial Review Background on David Wallace-Wells
David Wallace-Wells has a message for the citizens of the earth - and it isn’t pretty. A zenith has been reached and it is all downhill from here as climate change cascades over everything we have built in the industrial age. He explores each aspect of what climate change means for us today, in thirty years, and by the end of the century, depending largely on what we choose to do today. The likely results of just two, three, and four degrees of warming seems increasingly alarming, as well they should be, but we have the tools to slow the cataclysm of the Anthropocene. Will the world awaken from its narcissistic state of complacency in time?
