About this book
A fascinating exploration of how the changing climate can trigger earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes - providing readers with a new insight into how the various systems of the Earth interact. Demonstrates that the scale and range of hazards from climate change may be greater than previously anticipated, and looks back to Earth's past to consider what our future may hold.
The last 20,000 years has seen our world flip from icehouse to greenhouse, provoking earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic outbursts. Like a giant stirring from a long sleep, the Earth beneath our feet tossed and turned. Bill McGuire argues that climate change is once more setting the scene for the giant to reawaken, and we can already see the signs.
