The finish of Stationarity deftly depicts the wild, new carbon financial system, and exhibits us how international locations, rising and constructed, teeter on its verge of collapse. initially released in hardcover as Carbon Shock, the publication is up-to-date all through and contains a new afterword, in line with the Paris weather talks.
