|aAt the start of the 21st century our ambition seems only matched by our ability to engineer the world around us. But our very success is putting us on a collision course with the forces of nature. Now, as we pump billions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, we are potentially creating the most lethal man-made natural disaster in history. Global warming may be the greatest threat to our future survival. Building the Future: Surviving Climate Change reveals humankind’s remarkable ability to fight back and how now, more than ever, our engineering ingenuity must provide the answers to our most basic need – protection and safety from the deadly extremes of nature.
