WAKING THE GIANT LISTED AS ONE OF THE BEST ECO BOOKS EVER

Award-winning environmental journalist and author, Fred Pearce, has ranked Waking the Giant at number five in his list of the best ever eco books. The citation observes: 'Just out, and dreadfully alarming. Bill McGuire, a distinguished geologist and brilliant science writer, charts how changing climate may trigger not just wild weather but also volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. Perhaps it already is. The last time that ice caps were melting and sea levels were rising, geology was in overdrive. Faults shuddered, magma melted and mayhem followed. As McGuire persuasively shows, it could be kicking off again. This is science so scary that even the climate scientists widely dismissed as alarmists do not dare speak of it.'
