Gwynne Dyer Signing and Discussion 

When: Tue., July 20, 7 p.m. 2010
While there are many books about the science of climate change, London-based Canadian journalist Gwynne Dyer explores the subject's military, political and strategic implications in his new book Climate Wars. Dyer — a syndicated columnist, military historian and geopolitical analyst — wrote the book War, which was made into a seven-part documentary series that aired in 45 countries in the 1980s and received an Academy Award nomination for one of its episodes. In Climate Wars, Dyer proposes several hypothetical “climate scenarios,” and speculates what the world might look like if the mega-disasters many scientists predict — heat waves, floods, droughts, wildfires and storms 10 times more powerful than Katrina — come to fruition. The book has garnered mostly positive press, and in the wake of the blistering heat wave that plagued the Northeast last week, Dyer's appearance here is particularly timely. (Dyer's book should not be confused with Climate War, Bloomberg News deputy editor Eric Pooley's analysis of the political wrangling behind the scenes of the climate change debate, which will be reviewed in an upcoming issue of the Scene.)
