    The history of the Great Warming of a half millennium ago suggests that we may yet be underestimating the power of climate change to disrupt our lives todayand our vulnerability to drought, writes Fagan, is the silent elephant in the room.

    Paul says: "Good book but unpracticed, disjointed narration."
    "A study of the obvious: Droughts kill people"

    Would you try another book from Brian Fagan and/or Tavia Gilbert?

    No. He is much too much in love with Al Gore


    What could Brian Fagan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Forget Al Gore. Droughts have been the bane of civilizations forever and they will continue to be. Al Gore and his buddies cannot do anything about it.Only a few of the stories he told were news. He didn't even mention the fall of the Eastern Roman Empire and the rise of Islam. That would be much more interesting than how the Easter Islanders ate themselves out of existance.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator did fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I am interested in why history happens and there were a few tidbits in there.


    Any additional comments?

    This guy needs to get out of his echo chamber and read his own material. Climate always changes
