Alex Hyde-White narrates this deep dive into climate history with just the right tone and tempo. His deliberate style allows listeners to take in the nuances of the relationships among major climate upheavals--earthquakes, floods, ice ages, and, of course, warming--to identify how humans have suffered, persevered, and adapted. The authors, both archaeologists, utilize recent revelations in climate science, archaeology, and history to unearth lessons from Rome, the Mayan empire, China, India, and Europe. They chronicle the local and global disasters of the past thirty thousand years. The 1815 Mount Tambora explosion in Indonesia affected the entire planet, including the American economy. Their thesis that the "past holds the keys to the future" is amply documented. The audiobook ends on a cautiously optimistic note. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2022]
