The 2084 Report

The 2084 Report

As his health begins to fail, a historian in the year 2084 sets out to document the irreparable damage climate change has wrought on the planet over the course of his life. He interviews scientists, political leaders and ordinary people all around the world who have suffered its catastrophic effects, from devastating floods and mass droughts to war and famine. In a series of short chapters, we learn that much of New York has been abandoned, 50 million Bangladeshis are refugees and half of the Netherlands is under water.

This is all fiction. But it is rooted in scientific fact.

Written by a professor of geochemistry, James Lawrence Powell, The 2084 Report accurately chronicles the future we will face if nothing is done to address the climate crisis. A vivid portrait of climate change and its tangible impact on our lives, The 2084 Report is a powerful prophecy and urgent call to action.

Reviews

'This is a sobering and scary (and fascinating) book-a look at where we're going if we don't quickly get our act together. And it's replete with clues about how we could indeed make the changes that would make this fiction, not prophecy'
Bill McKibben, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of FALTER: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out
'The 2084 Report is probably the most important literary work on climate change - because by dressing such a necessary message in "disaster movie" clothes, Powell ensures a wider audience than a conventional scientific work.'
