In How to Prepare for Climate Change, David Pogue offers sensible, deeply researched advice for how people can ready themselves for the years ahead. Pogue will speak about many of the topics found within the book, such as what to grow and eat, how to build and insure, where to invest, how to prepare our children and pets, and even where to consider relocating when the time comes. Pogue also provides wise tips for managing our anxiety, as well as action plans for riding out every climate catastrophe, from superstorms and wildfires to ticks and epidemics. Signed copies of How to Prepare for Climate Change will be available at Elm Street Books, New Canaan.
