Description

When frontline BBC news reporter David Shukman switched beat from world affairs to environment in 2003, he feared he might be in for a dull life. He couldn't have been more wrong. His new job has taken him to every corner of the earth: journeying up the fabled North West Passage in the Arctic, chasing after loggers in the Amazon and battling through plastic waste in the Pacific Ocean, getting trapped in Siberian blizzards along the way.Reporting Live from the End of the World charts Shukman's extraordinary adventures, in the process providing a fascinating eye-witness account of the state of the planet. We follow Shukman through a series of vivid experiences - such as seeing how the Greenland ice sheet has been turned grey by soot from factories thousands of miles away - and observe his gradual, somewhat reluctant, conversion to the environmental cause.Wonderfully written and often very funny, the book will be loved by travel, science or environment readers alike.
