The authors favourite word is quotidian, he uses it 3 times in the first chapter and then again 3 more times before the end. I wonder what editors missed that? Having said that this book is not my choice for a deep treatise on the potential damage of climate change. It is a weak summary of scientific literature on the future we face as a result of unrestrained climate change for people who haven’t been keeping up with the effects of global warming. If you want a better book then I recommend “Under a Green Sky” by Peter D. Ward also available at this library.
