Renowned scientist and author releases second book on global warming. The latest book by anthropologist and best-selling author Brian Fagan outlines what he says is the real threat to climate change survival, namely, inland drought. In his book titled, “The Great Warming: Climate Change and the Rise and Fall of Civilizations,” Dr. Fagan states that although rising sea levels are causing coastal flooding, inland areas will suffer the opposite, as reliable precipitation vanishes.
By tracing climate patterns back in time, Dr. Fagan says that history “shows how drought can destabilize a society and lead to its collapse.
” Our deep appreciation, Dr. Brian Fagan, for your observant and articulate voice that further alerts us to the current planetary dilemma. We sincerely pray that all societies realize the need for urgent action to save our Mother Earth.
