Description:

Imagine a world of wildly escalating temperatures, apocalyptic flooding, devastating storms and catastrophic sea levels.nbsp;This might sound like a prediction for the future or the storyline of a new Hollywood blockbuster but it’s actually what occurred on earth in the past.nbsp;In a day and age when worrying forecasts for future climate change are the norm, it seems hard to believe that such things happened regularly over time. Cannbsp;humankind decipher the past and learn from it? nbsp; As science gains new understanding of how the planet works, it’s becomingnbsp;increasingly clear that no one place is disconnected from anywhere else.nbsp;From the Alps to the Andes, seemingly unrelated parts of the world are connected in one way or another.nbsp;By reading this booknbsp;you’ll realize thatnbsp;we're facing challenges beyond anything our species has had to contend with before.
