About the Author

Gaia Vince is an award-winning science journalist, author, broadcaster, and speaker. She is the author of Nomad Century, Transcendence, and Adventures in the Anthropocene.


"Gaia Vince's new book should be read not just by every politician, but by every person on the planet. " --The Guardian

"Nomad Century is the most important book I imagine I'll ever read. Gaia Vince calmly--without drum-banging or hand-wringing--sets forth likely consequences and end-of-century projections for our rapidly changing planet. It'll knock you flat. But before you hit the ground, she hands over an impressively detailed survival plan: supporting radical migration from newly uninhabitable regions, rethinking urban structures and food practices, and restoring climate." --Mary Roach, author of Fuzz

"The climate crisis already has millions of people on the move, and that number will steadily grow higher till it breaks the political structures of the planet--unless, as Vince suggests, we start now to remake those structures so they can cope, and indeed benefit, from the flow of humans that is now inevitable. An important and provocative start to a crucial conversation." --Bill McKibben, author of The Flag, the Cross, and the Station Wagon

"This book is a rather astounding addition to a growing body of thought that suggests the twenty-first century is going to include, and even require, lots of human migration--and that handled correctly, this could be part of a good adaptation to the climate and biosphere crisis we are now entering. What Vince gives us here is some cognitive mapping to understand the situation and see a way forward." -- Kim Stanley Robinson, author of The Ministry for the Future

"Once again, Gaia Vince demonstrates that she is one of the finest science writers at work today." --Bill Bryson, author of The Body

"Nomad Century is a landmark work--terrifying in its message and urgency, but ultimately empowering in its conviction about a path forward. Gaia Vince lays bare the scale of the challenge before us, and the grand ideas that will be needed to meet it. We must be ready; this book shows us how." --Ed Yong, author of An Immense World
