Today’s Revolution in Weather! — William J. Baxter (1954).

William Baxter recognized the global warming trend in the early 1950s and foresaw its impact on markets and the economy. He points to numerous factors and statistics to support his thesis and then provides advice on how to run your business and portfolio accordingly. If that isn’t intriguing enough, the Virgil Partch cartoons may get your attention. As one of the most prolific cartoonists and illustrators of the ’40s and ’50s, his style is recognizable to most Baby Boomers.

"The current model is global suicide. We need a revolution. Revolutionary thinking. Revolutionary action. Natural resources are becoming more and more scarce," Ban Ki-Moon.
