THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS will be available on Sept. 25, 2018.

From St. Martin’s Press:

"Jeff Nesbit has delivered an enlightening - and alarming - explanation of climate challenge as it exists today. Climate change is no far-off threat. It's impacting communities all over the world at this very moment, and we ignore the scientific reality at our own peril. The good news? As Nesbit underscores, disaster is not preordained. The global community can meet this moment — and we must." —Senator John Kerry

A unique view of climate change glimpsed through the world's resources that are disappearing.

The world itself won’t end, of course. Only ours will: our livelihoods, our homes, our cultures. And we’re squarely at the tipping point.

Longer droughts in the Middle East. Growing desertification in China and Africa. The monsoon season shrinking in India. Amped-up heat waves in Australia. More intense hurricanes reaching America. Water wars in the Horn of Africa. Rebellions, refugees and starving children across the globe. These are not disconnected events. These are the pieces of a larger puzzle that environmental expert Jeff Nesbit puts together

Unless we start addressing the causes of climate change and stop simply navigating its effects, we will be facing a series of unstoppable catastrophes by the time our preschoolers graduate from college. Our world is in trouble – right now. This Is the Way the World Ends tells the real stories of the substantial impacts to Earth’s systems unfolding across each continent. The bad news? Within two decades or so, our carbon budget will reach a point of no return.

But there’s good news. Like every significant challenge we’ve faced—from creating civilization in the shadow of the last ice age to the Industrial Revolution—we can get out of this box canyon by understanding the realities, changing the worn-out climate conversation to one that’s relevant to every person. Nesbit provides a clear blueprint for real-time, workable solutions we can tackle together.

My previous non-fiction book with St. Martin’s Press, POISON TEA, was well received by critics. The New York Times called it a “refresher course in Civics 101.” In addition to my non[-fiction, I’ve written more than 20 inspirational novels with Tyndale, Zondervan, Thomas Nelson, Guideposts, Summerside Press, David C. Cook, Hodder & Stoughton, Harold Shaw (part of Random House) and Victor Books.

I was the public affairs director for the National Science Foundation and the Food and Drug Administration, former Vice President Dan Quayle's communications director at the White House; and a national journalist with Knight-Ridder and others. I’m the executive director of Climate Nexus, based in New York, and a contributing writer for The New York Times, Time, U.S. News & World Report and other publications.

  Audible audiobook available at Amazon      Narrated by Broadway actor Robertson Dean  Review  "When Iran's nuclear program accelerates, alarmed Israelis launch stealth bombers. While fundamentalist Christians and Jews celebrate and Islamic populations rage, world leaders look for peaceful solutions. Robertson Dean handles Nesbit’s complex plot with precision. His depictions of the anxiety over peace talks aimed at permanently partitioning Jerusalem to settle the Arab-Jewish conflict capture Israelis’ genuine fears of their nation’s extinction. Dean's deft handling of diverse nationalities, dual genders, and varying ages ensures that listeners can easily keep track of characters and plot. The story’s subtle Christian perspective is portrayed through brief remarks and an occasional prayer that is essential to the story."  G.D.W. © AudioFile Portland, Maine
