He is author of The Fate of the Species: Why the Human Race May Cause Its Own Extinction and How We Can Stop It (“From reverse genetics that creates a deadly flu virus to climate change that kills the Asian monsoons, his scenarios are so fascinating and compelling you almost forget what's at stake.
