Building mansions up to the edges of coastlines, disrupting the deserts for oil; short-term human goals consistently come up against the obvious and ongoing effects of climate change. In their new books, journalist Nathaniel Rich (Losing Earth) and Pulitzer Prize-winner Gilbert Gaul (The Geography of Risk) examine human hubris in the face of our environment’s increasingly drastic cries for help–and its threats if our behavior doesn’t change.
