Wadhams, Peter, A Farewell to Ice: A Report from the Arctic, Allen Lane, 2016

Wadhams, Peter, ‘A Farewell to Ice’,  is the latest summary of the evidence of the appalling state of the planet, confirming the warnings in James Hansen’s 2007 book ‘Storms of my Grandchildren’. This is the best book I know if you want to understand and to appreciate the urgent need to take action to stop burning fossil fuels.
