    In crystalline prose, Wallace-Wells provides a devastating overview of where we are in terms of climate crisis and ecological destruction, and what the future will hold if we keep on going down the same path. Urgently readable, this is an epoch-defining book. — Matt Haig, ‘The Book that Changed My Mind’ ― The Guardian

     

    The most terrifying book I have ever read . . . a meticulously documented, white-knuckled tour through the cascading catastrophes that will soon engulf our warming planet. ― The New York Times

     

    A must-read. It’s not only the grandkids and the kids: it’s you. And it’s not only those in other countries: it’s you. — Margaret Atwood ― Twitter

     

    Riveting . . . Some readers will find Mr Wallace-Wells’s outline of possible futures alarmist. He is indeed alarmed. You should be, too. ― The Economist

     

    There is much to learn from this book. From media and scientific reports of the past decade, Wallace-Wells sifts key predictions and conveys them in vivid prose. — David George Haskell ― The Observer

     

    If there are people around to write history books in the future, they will look back at the @ExtinctionR protestors and think they were the sanest people of our time. Read The Uninhabitable Earth by @dwallacewells if you don’t know why. ― Johann Hari, Twitter

     

    Yes, this book will scare you, but it will also prompt you to take action to ensure the damage we as humans have done to the planet is stopped. ― Stylist, Your Guide to the Best Books of 2019

    How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need

    Rs. 2,590.00
    or 3 X Rs.863.33 with

    Bill Gates

     

    “I wrote this book because I don’t just see the problem of climate change; I also see the opportunity to solve it” – Bill Gates

     

    Gates’ book is compulsively readable. His ambition was to ‘cut through the noise’ and give consumers better tools for understanding what works, an ambition he meets admirably. It more than that, however. Gates can get an audience with anyone, can marshal almost limitless resources, and is dogged in the detail. The result – particularly in the wake of the Trump presidency – is thrilling — Emma Brockes ― The Guardian

     

    Of the many books I have come across recently making the case that climate change will be a catastrophe, but we can do something about it, this is the best … The relentless practicality of the book combined with Gates’s firm faith in innovation do not promote despair. He exudes optimism; things will get better, not least because, as John Lennon once sang, they can’t get no worse — Bryan Appleyard ― Sunday Times

     

    It is mostly concerned with solutions rather than problems. This already marks it out as something of an outlier within environmental literature… if you’re after an approachable book about what needs to happen next, this is a great place to start — Ed Conway ― The Times

     

    Bold but well argued … a compelling explanation of how the world can stop global warming by reducing greenhouse gas emissions effectively to zero… [Gates] is a serious and genuine force for good on climate change — Bob Ward ― Observer

     

    How to Avoid a Climate Disaster is clear, concise on a colossal subject, and intelligently holistic in its approach to the problem. — Adam Vaughan ― New Scientist

     

    It all makes for a meaty manifesto which Gates hopes can offer sufficient variety to appeal across political divides and “shift the conversation” away from the polarisation and misinformation that has clouded discussion about climate change up until now. — Martin Bentham ― Evening Standard

     

    Gates’s carefully packaged nuggets of information are not only easy to understand, but they aim to provide the reader with practical tools to engage with the density of climate change information … What Gates has achieved with his book is something rare in the swelling arena of popular climate literature. The Microsoft co-founder turned philanthropist has compiled a solutions-based strategy that is as informed on the commercial realities of scaling new technologies as it is on the environmental consequences of not doing so. — Daniel Murray ― The Business Post

     

    The most refreshing aspect of this book is its bracing mix of cold-eyed realism and number-crunched optimism … Ultimately [Gates’s] book is a primer on how to reorganise the global economy so that innovation focuses on the world’s gravest problems. It is a powerful reminder that if mankind is to get serious about tackling them, it must do more to harness the one natural resource available in infinite quantity-human ingenuity. ― Economist

     

    Gates plots out, in patient, simple prose, a pathway that would allow us to reduce carbon emissions from the current 51 billion tonnes a year to zero by 2050. — Thomas Jones ― London Review of Books

    The Nutmeg’s Curse: Parables for a Planet in Crisis

    Rs. 2,990.00
    or 3 X Rs.996.67 with

    Amitav Ghosh

     

    What do you do when the subject matter of life on this planet seems to lack . . . life? Your read The Nutmeg’s Curse, which eschews the leaden language of climate expertise in favor of the re-animating powers of mythology, etymology, and cosmology. Ghosh challenges readers to reckon with war, empire, and genocide in order to fully grasp the world-devouring logics that underpin ecological collapse. We owe a great debt to his brilliant mind, avenging pen, and huge soul. Do not miss this book-and above all, do not tell yourself that you already know its contents, because you don’t. — Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate

     

    In this brilliant book, aflame with insight and moral power, Ghosh shows that in the history of the nutmeg lies the path to our planetary crisis, twisting through the horrors of empire and racial capitalismThe Nutmeg’s Curse brings to life alternative visions of human flourishing in consonance with the rest of nature-and reminds us how great are the vested interests that obstruct them. — Sunil Amrith, author of Unruly Waters

     

    The Nutmeg’s Curse elegantly and audaciously reconceives modernity as a centuries-long campaign of omnicide, against the spirits of the earth, the rivers, the trees, and even the humble nutmeg, then makes an impassioned argument for the keen necessity of vitalist thought and non-human narrative. With sweeping historical perspective and startling insight, Ghosh has written a groundbreaking, visionary call to new forms of human life in the Anthropocene. An urgent and powerful book. Roy Scranton, author of Learning to Die in the Anthropocene: Reflections on the End of a Civilization

     

    It’s widely recognized that the climate crisis is multi-dimensional, yet American cultural conversations about it are mostly stuck in its scientific, technological, and economic dimensions. In this tour de force, Amitav Ghosh defiantly moves the conversation into the realms of history, politics, and culture, insisting that we will never resolve our planetary crisis until we acknowledge that the “great acceleration” of the past fifty years is part of a larger historical pattern of omnicide. For centuries, the dominant global powers have seen Earth–its plants, its animals, and its non-white peoples–as brute objects: mute, without agency, and available for the taking and killing. The solution to the climate crisis, Ghosh insists, is not injecting particles into the stratosphere to block the sun, or even to build a bevy of solar farms (as important as the latter is). Rather, the solution lies in re-engaging with the vital aspects of life, in all its capaciousness, and in doing so move past our long history of destruction and into true sustainability. — Naomi Oreskes
