In How to Prepare for Climate Change, David Pogue–a six-time Emmy Award-winning technology and science correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning, New York Times bestselling author, host of science specials on PBS NOVA and 2020-trained Climate Reality Leader –offers a sensible, deeply researched guide with practical advice for how everyday people can ready themselves for the tumultuous years ahead. Rather than focusing on mitigation, David will discuss how we must adapt to a hotter, wetter, more unpredictable world.

  • Where should you live to avoid the worst natural disasters?
  • What insurance do you need in the more chaotic weather era?
  • How to invest as the world decarbonizes?
  • What to grow in your garden as backup food?
  • Where to find hope in a fast-changing world that leaves people anxious, depressed and adrift.

With the help of 50 experts on climate, finance, agriculture, psychology, and emergency preparedness, David brings his trademark clarity, authority, and even humor to an unexplored subject: preparing your family, your home, your business, and your life for our planet’s chaotic future.
