    Global warming's physical impacts can be separated into three broad categories: melt, drought, and deluge. Funk travels to two dozen countries to profile entrepreneurial people who see a potential windfall in each of these forces. The melt is a boon for newly arable, mineral rich regions of the Arctic, such as Greenland - and for the man-made snow trade. Drought creates opportunities for private firefighters working for insurance companies as well as for fund managers backing south Sudanese warlords who control local farmland.

    Andy says: "unintended windfalls mixed with obvious perils"
    "Whoops."

    What did you like best about Windfall? What did you like least?

    This is not an unbiased economic tome. The writer seems to think all business's are bad for the planet. And everyone in a position of authority is a buffoon. Malthusian to the point that the planet would be better off without people on it.
    The cynicism is palpable.
    The narrator read a zombie appocalyps sieris and it was also very cynical, but funny. This book is dour.
    But I did not finish the whole book. So it may get better further along.
