From Evolution to Extinction, A Primer on Global Warming delivers one message: global warming presents an imminent threat to the existence of almost all living things including the human species. Technological advances are compounding our efforts to deal with global warming as the tipping point draws inexorably
closer at an accelerating speed. Addressing the pending crisis requires the combined efforts of individuals and their social institutions, but these are not sufficiently evolved to meet the threat of extinction. By providing an overview of the scientific efforts to warn of the crisis and the progress of human evolution against the backdrop of human failings, unresolved global issues, and the unintended consequences of technology, the reader is left to realize that we are not ready or equipped todeal with global warming. The crisis is much closer than people wish to think and the human species is running out of time. Governments and corporations can
no longer play with the issue of global warming. The issue is now in the hands of the people to compel their governments to act as needed, but the critical question remains: are governments and the people capable of meeting the challenges?
