Quotes & Awards

  • “Stephan Faris has traveled everywhere, holding his journalist’s looking glass up for everyone to see the same carbon-crazed climate monster looming in every reflection. Reader, that mirror is now in your hands. Your world, too, is peering from these pages. Better pay attention.”

    Alan Weisman, New York Times bestselling author of The World without Us

  • “An intelligent, nuanced report on the complex relationships between increasingly unstable weather patterns and politics, ecology, and lifestyles.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A globe-spanning look at the effects of climate change, already apparent in our time…Faris writes deftly about the developing world.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “As Stephan Faris’ Forecast so powerfully illustrates, global warming is already playing a crucial role in a number of issues besetting the planet…With a very deft hand, and even a touch of ironic wit, Faris shows that global warming comes at real cost to real people—and the future is already upon us.”

    Scott Anderson, author of The Man Who Tried to Save the World

    " I really tried to like this book, but it just failed to keep my attention. It had some interesting parts, such as the discussion about infections, however, I found the book, overall, to be on the boring side. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea Hejtmanek | 11/25/2012

    " Wow, it is pretty shocking to hear how global warming and climate change have already disrupted many communities around the world. We are seeing effects now. This book is very informative and has a lot of great information. Also the way it is written is very engaging, not dry at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 1/15/2010

    " Points out ways in which climate change could impact society that we don't necessarily think about. The chapters on coastal property and the wine industry are excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ray | 12/31/2009

    " The author discusses the affects climate change may have on several areas around the globe, although it often takes him an awful long time to get to his point. While the causes and potential solutions are given light treatment, the potential affects are sobering. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 10/29/2009

    " Particularly intrigued by the sections of the book that showed the under-reported effects of climate change; how fewer resources (and/or access to resources) can lead to social disorder, and how so many of the conflicts have roots in climate change. "
