A dramatic survey of potential man-made disasters shares authoritative insights into today's risky scientific ventures, providing coverage of examples ranging from climate change and nuclear meltdowns to bio-hazards and the Large Hadron Collider. By the author of Before the Big Bang.

McMillan Palgrave
An exploration of the terrifying threats to our world that fill today’s headlines: from global warming epidemic to the threat of nuclear weapons and the risk posed by the leading edge devices like the Large Hadron Collider. Armageddon Science by Brian Clegg is everything you want to know about potential man-made disaster.
Climate change. Nuclear devastation. Bio-hazards. The Large Hadron Collider. What do these things have in common? They all have the potential to end our world. Every great scientific creation of man is balanced by an equal amount of danger—as there’s no progress without risk. Armageddon Science is an authoritative look at the real “mad science” at work today, that recklessly puts life on Earth at risk for the pursuit of knowledge and personal gain. This book explores the reality of the dangers that science poses to the human race, from the classic fear of nuclear destruction to the latest possibilities for annihilation. Combining the science behind those threats with an understanding of the real people responsible as well as providing an assessment of the likelihood of the end of the world, this isn’t a disaster movie, it’s Armageddon Science.
