Product Description A practical and comprehensive guide to surviving the greatest disaster of our time, from New York Times bestselling 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 3 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, bestselling 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 readers 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. Review “It’s always a good idea to prepare for a disaster, especially one you see coming. [Pogue] has got you covered." — New York Times Book Review "[Pogue's] urgency makes the book an indispensable resource... A long, comprehensive book perfect for reading in parts, one that consistently reminds us that while it’s too late for a climate rewind, being prepared is the next best thing. Practicality, awareness, and survivalism converge in a sturdy cautionary handbook on enduring Earth’s new realities." — Kirkus Review "Reasoned and nonsensationalized. [Pogue's] final message? Prepare. That's one thing readers can control, and this extensive guide offers lots to think about and plenty of practical advice." — Booklist (starred review) About the Author David Pogue is the host of twenty science specials on PBS NOVA, a five-time Emmy Award–winning technology and science correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning, and a  New York Times bestselling author.   Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. “How to Prepare for Climate Change” by David Pogue (Simon & Schuster, 2021) is the first practical guide to adapting to the new climate. It covers where to live; how to invest; how to insure; how to talk to your kids; how to build; what to grow; how to prepare a business; and how to prepare for flood, fire, drought, hurricane, heat waves, and tornadoes.  This excerpt is from Chapter 10, “Preparing for Heat Waves.”  Preparing for Heat Waves  You could fill an internet with examples of heat records being broken recently:  The last five years have been the hottest ever measured on the planet.   September 2020 was the hottest month ever recorded.   The hottest temperature ever reliably recorded was 130° F in Death Valley, California—on July 10, 2021.  The July 2021 North American heat wave produced the hottest temperatures ever recorded in Canada (121.3°), Oregon (116°), and Washington state (118°).   But these records are made—and guaranteed—to be broken, over and over again. Computer models predict that from 2050 to 2100, heat waves will triple in frequency.  Figure 10-1. The 0 line represents the 1901–2000 average worldwide temperature, as measured by both land-based and sea-surface sensors. The downward bars indicate below-average temperatures; the upward ones indicate above average.  Unfortunately, in most years, heat is the biggest killer of them all. In 20
