NCSE is pleased to offer a free preview (PDF) of Tim Flannery's Atmosphere of Hope: Searching for Solutions to the Climate Crisis (Grove Press, 2015). The preview consists of chapter 4, "How Are the Animals Doing?" which discusses climate change's threat to biodiversity, as well as a new afterword added to the 2016 paperback edition of the book.
"Thoughtful, candid and — yes — ultimately upbeat, Atmosphere of Hope could not be more timely," writes Elizabeth Kolbert (author of The Sixth Extinction). "It is just the book the world needs right now." Tim Flannery is a scientist, explorer, and conservationist; he served as head of the Australian Climate Change Commission from 2011 to 2013.
