    The U.S. scientific community has long led the world in research on such areas as public health, environmental science, and issues affecting quality of life.

But at the same time, a small yet potent subset of this community leads the world in vehement denial of these dangers.

    The year is 2393, and the world is almost unrecognizable. Clear warnings of climate catastrophe went ignored for decades, leading to soaring temperatures, rising sea levels, widespread drought, and the disaster now known as the Great Collapse of 2093. Dramatizing science in ways traditional nonfiction cannot, The Collapse of Western Civilization reasserts the importance of scientists and the work they do, providing a welcome moment of clarity amid the cacophony of climate-change literature.
