Of ice and men : how we've used cold to transform humanity.

Hogge, Fred. (Author).

Summary:

"An exploration of humanity's relationship with ice since the dawn of civilization, Of Ice and Men reminds us that only by understanding this unique substance can we save the ice on our planet--and perhaps ourselves. Ice has supercharged the modern world. It has allowed us to feed ourselves and cure ourselves in ways unimaginable two hundred years ago. It has enabled the global population to rise from less than 1 billion to nearly 7 1/2 billion--which just happens to cover the same period of time as humanity has harvested, manufactured, and distributed ice on an industrial scale"-- Provided by publisher.
