The Earth’s engine is running too hot and boils over as extreme weather that can strike different regions in different ways, but always with disastrous consequences. Today’s quote comes from American author and Rolling Stone editor Jeff Goodell’s book The Heat Will Kill You First, “Life on Earth is like a finely calibrated machine, one that has been built by evolution to work very well within its design parameters. Heat breaks that machine in a fundamental way.”

Check out Jeff Goodell’s books: How to Cool the Planet: Geoengineering and the Audacious Quest to Fix Earth’s Climate, Big Coal: The Dirty Secret Behind America’s Energy Future, and The Water Will Come: Rising Seas, Sinking Cities, and the Remaking of the Civilized World.
