This week’s podcasts brings another highlight of the most recent Church Times Festival of Faith and Literature, which took place in Winchester in late February: Gaia Vince in conversation with the Rt Revd John Pritchard about her book Nomad Century: How to survive the climate upheaval (Features, 2 December, Books, 23 December).
In a review of the book for the Church Times, the Rt Revd David Chillingworth described it as “a remarkable and important book. It takes a hard look at what our world may become as the effects of global warming gather pace. . .
“Vince suggests that the response of humanity to these challenges [of climate change] must be the one that it has always used: migration. Migration is ‘not the problem. . . migration is the oldest survival trick.’ Hence the title, Nomad Century.”
Nomad Century is published by Penguin and is available to buy from the Church House Bookshop; 978-0-24152-231-8.
Gaia Vince is an award-winning science journalist, writer, and broadcaster, and an honorary senior research fellow at UCL.
The Rt Revd John Pritchard is a former Bishop of Oxford.
