Body Count: How climate change is killing us

‘Our house is on fire,’ 16-year-old Swedish school strike activist Greta Thunberg told world leaders in 2019. Across an angry year of weather, Australians watched it in real-time: record heatwaves and worsening drought, unprecedented fish kills in the Murray-Darling Basin and devastating wildfires across Queensland and NSW – this is climate change, a terrifying portent for the most arid continent on earth. But most shocking of all is the untold human toll – escalating human deaths in Australia and beyond. The climate crisis is now a health emergency, with extreme weather events, disease, mental illness and infrastructure collapse killing what the WHO predicts will be millions around the world over the next decade. Shocking and undeniable, Manning reveals what climate change really looks like, telling the moving stories of victims, their families and doctors – putting names and faces to the people who have already paid the ultimate price for inaction on the biggest moral challenge of our century.
