Clear Science made accesible for the general reader,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic (Kindle Edition)
David Quammen is an excellent writer who can make some difficult science easily accessible to the general reader and he does not shy away from a little of the necessary mathematics.
Read this in conjunction with Jared Diamond's "Collapse" and Ian Morris' "Why The West Rules--For Now: The Patterns of History and What They Reveal About the Future". You will then understand why the global warming lobby is a naive and simplified view of how man is probably destroying the planet and civilization as we know it. This is truly the pale horse of the apocalypse made reality . The predicted world population of 9 billion will lead to its own demise.
