Synopsis

These are not doomsayers reports, they are what world leaders in science, politics, economics, industry, and insurance are saying about the state of the planet. In Sound of Sirens: Tabula Rasa, the first of a two-part series, G.E. Johnson frames the present condition of a growing global civilization and describes the sensitive systems of planet Earth concerning global temperature change. At the beginning of the 21st century, people around the world rely on complex systems to provide basic necessities, security, and prosperity. These systems depend and are based on the foundation of stable and predictable weather patterns provided by today's average global surface temperature and corresponding climate regimes. This foundation is changing. G.E. Johnson is a pioneer in the discussion on adapting human settlements to a changing planet during the 21st century. Trained in the United States and Europe during the past 10 years, his voice breathes new life into the discussion, taking it beyond convention and into the popular culture. With his first book he invites all readers to learn about the complex nature of the Earth, the cumulative effect human activity has had on the integrity of global systems, and the vulnerability of human settlements to disruptions caused by a changing planet. Presented like no other books on the subject, the Sound of Sirens duology takes the reader through what is considered to be the most important issue shaping the future of human settlements and life on planet Earth. ... G.E. Johnson passed away suddenly in 2005. His work is being published as it was originally written ...
