Current Affairs

While reporting just outside of Darfur, Stephan Faris discovered that climate change was at the root of that conflict, and began to wonder what current and impending - and largely unanticipated - crises such changes have in store for the world. Forecast provides the answers. Global warming will spur the spread of many diseases. Malaria is gaining ground in Africa. The warming world will shift huge populations and potentially redraw political alliances around the globe, driving environmentalists into the hands of anti-immigrant groups. Crops will fail in previously lush places and thrive in some formerly barren zones, altering huge industries and remaking traditions. The result of wide travel and reporting, Forecast is a powerful, gracefully written account of the surprising ways that climate change will affect the world in the near future - politically, economically, and culturally.
