Publisher's Summary

A practical and comprehensive guide to surviving the greatest disaster of our time, from New York Times best-selling self-help author and beloved CBS Sunday Morning science and technology correspondent David Pogue.

You might not realize it, but we’re already living through the beginnings of climate chaos. In Arizona, laborers now start their day at three a.m. because it’s too hot to work past noon. Chinese investors are snapping up real estate in Canada. Millennials have evacuation plans. Moguls are building bunkers. Retirees in Miami are moving inland. 

In How to Prepare for Climate Change, best-selling self-help author David Pogue offers sensible, deeply researched advice for how the rest of us should start to ready ourselves for the years ahead. Pogue walks listeners through what to grow, what to eat, how to build, how to insure, where to invest, how to prepare your children and pets, and even where to consider relocating when the time comes. (Two areas of the country, in particular, have the requisite cool temperatures, good hospitals, reliable access to water, and resilient infrastructure to serve as climate havens in the years ahead.) He also provides wise tips for managing your anxiety, as well as action plans for riding out every climate catastrophe, from superstorms and wildfires to ticks and epidemics.

Timely and enlightening, How to Prepare for Climate Change is an indispensable guide for anyone who read The Uninhabitable Earth or The Sixth Extinction and wants to know how to make smart choices for the upheaval ahead.

Best climate change handbook

David Pogue’s book is one of the best handbooks on climate change. He covers a wide range of issues related to climate change. Worthwhile information. I learned many things that I wasn’t aware of. Highly recommended book.

Very informative, though not super "entertaining"

This book is meant more for paperback than audio, something to reference like a dictionary than listen to cover to cover. The "pop" sound they use to represent bullet points is genuinely anxiety inducing until you get use to it (I had to force myself to listen to the book past the 3rd pop - PLEASE NEVER DO THAT AGAIN AUDIOBOOK PEOPLE!) It's not great to listen to on long walks, but it's worth having a paper copy without a doubt. Very good information and worth a listen if nothing else.

What is the popping sound?

I am only on chapter one of this book (listening at 2.6x speed) and I am finding it so painfully grating solely because the narrator makes this popping sound after completing a statement or fact. What is that? Is the sound intentional? The information being provided is great, but it’s the verbal delivery that might prevent me from finishing this audiobook.

A good listen, but maybe better as physical

This contained a lot of information, some of it repetitive in audiobook format. I felt that it was a good book overall but I maybe should have gotten a physical copy to read instead, then again being audio form did force me to finish it entirely so...

Brilliantly done.

My wife and I have watched David Pogue on The CBS Sunday morning show for years now. We also listen to his podcast. This reading of how to prepare for climate change is an eye-opening and scary prospect for what’s to come for our futures. A must read for anyone concerns about preparing for those changes to come. Well thought out and researched. Bravo!

It’s a triumph!

The fresh new approach, but with all the data explained so well. It’s the sort of book made for all, even those that deny and don’t want to do anything about it. Precisely the people that need to read about the issues, that would normally not be interested are likely to want to read this. I actually think this book could be one of the most important books ever written on the subject as it captures such a wide range of readership. I’ve been green for what feels like forever, but it’s other people that are important to reach. And David has reached them! Pure genius!!
