Join Dr James Dyke via ZOOM to hear about his book - Fire Storm and Flood: the violence of climate change.

Violent geologic events have ravaged the Earth since time began, spanning the vast eons of our planet's existence. These seismic phenomena have scored their marks in rock strata and been reflected in fossil records for future humanity to excavate and ponder. For most of the proceeding our history, we Homo sapiens simply observed natural climate upheaval. Two hundred years ago industrialization stunningly changed the rules, so that now most climate change is driven by us.

Fire, Storm and Flood is an unflinching photographic record of the epic effects of a violent climate, from the earliest extinction events to the present, in which we witness climate chaos forced by unnatural global warming. It uses often emotional and moving imagery to drive home the enormity of climatic events, offering a sweeping acknowledgment of our planet's heart-breaking vulnerability and show-stopping beauty.

Dr James Dyke is an academic, writer and author. He is an Assistant Director of the Global Systems Institute at the University of Exeter where he also leads the MSc Global Sustainability Solutions. He writes an environmental column for the UK newspaper i and is a contributor to the Guardian, Independent, Ecologist, The Conversation and many other publications. James conducted his doctoral research at the Evolutionary & Adaptive Systems Group at the University of Sussex, and then held posts at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena, Germany, and the Centre for Complex Systems Simulation at the University of Southampton.
