Not by Fire but by Ice: Discover What Killed The Dinosaurs..and Why It Could Soon Kill Us

by Robert W. Felix
     
 

Forget global warming. The next ice age could begin any day. Beginning with the dinosaur extinction of 65 million years ago, Not by Fire but by Ice explores the relationship between mass extinctions, ice ages, and geomagnetic reversals (times when compasses would have pointed south instead of north).

Editorial Reviews

Charles Walters
"Not by Fire but by Ice" shocks your liver away from its moorings, it is that riveting. [Felix's] journey into the whys and wherefores of climatic anomalies should make for more front page news than the death of Princes Di or the passing of Mother Teresa. A ten-inch rain--turned into snow--each day for a few weeks...would mean 100 inches of snow a day...in such abundance it could bring down every roof in Vancouver, Moose Jaw or Fargo. Indeed, thousands of cattle frozen to death on both sides of the Canadian line last winter suggest a tip-toe beginning. The door probably will be kicked open by the greatest El Nino in centuries. What is to be done when wheat no longer grows above the Canadian line? Would it not be in order to plant rye and other cold weather crops?
Daniel A. Walker, Dr.
An easy, enjoyable, and fascinating read....The book should be a bestseller, although it may not be politically correct to acknowledge the relatively feeble impact of man relative to the long-term episodic forces of nature.
Harry Schultz
A must read! Fascinating. Forget global warming! You'll shudder every time you see a snowflake! Earth changes have been massive. A volcano has virtually wiped out the island nation of Montserrat. A hurricane has turned Acapulco inside out. Massive droughts/floods have swept many nations. What's ahead will be even stronger..[and] could significantly affect commodity markets & inflation rate. We?ve mentioned polar shifts before. "Not by Fire but by Ice" puts all this together in a magnificent fashion with the best evidence yet.

Felix has done a most remarkable survey of the literature of the geologic past to attempt to delineate what natural processes may show us of our climatic future. For that alone the book is useful. His central theme--that we are approaching the end of this Holocene Interglacial--is, I think, quite correct. My own research indicates we are now in a New Little Ice age. Since we have used up the usual time of past interglacials, variously estimated at from 10,000 to 11,500 years, it is possible that our current Little Ice Age could turn into the Next Major Glaciation.
Seattle Post Intelligence
A book the entire world should read--before it's too late. With thorough research and good science, Felix demolishes the myth that humans are responsible for the planet's ills. We should act wisely and quickly to save the human race by heeding the truth about geomagnetic reversals and the coming ice age. Logical. Compelling. A reminder that environmental policy should be based on common sense and scientific facts, not hysteria.
