The Last Winter : A Search for Snow and the End of Winter

Publisher : Headline Publishing Group
SKU: 9781472270917
R 301,75
A gripping blend of narrative travelogue, history and climatology set against the planet's disappearing snow line and rendered by one of the foremost climate reporters.
October, 2021
As the planet warms due to greenhouse gas emissions, winter as we know it is disappearing. In the last fifty years, the Northern Hemisphere lost a million square miles of spring snowpack and in the US alone, snow cover has been reduced by 15-30%. On average, winter has shrunk by a month in most northern latitudes. In this deeply researched and adventure-filled book, journalist Porter Fox travels along the edge of the Northern Hemisphere's snow line to track the scope of this drastic change, and ultimately, predict what the future of winter-or lack thereof-will look like. This original research will be animated by five harrowing and illuminating journeys- each grounded by interviews with idiosyncratic, charismatic experts in their respective fields and Fox's own narrative of growing up on a remote island in Northern Maine. Timely, atmospheric, and expertly investigated, THE LAST WINTER will showcase like never before the true cost of climate change.
