Jonathan Mingle

In Fire and Ice, NYT, NYT Magazine, and Slate contributor Jon Mingle investigates the global threat of black carbon – the most dangerous pollutant you’ve probably never heard of.   Using the dramatic lens of a remote thousand-year-old village in the Himalayan mountains, the author tells how the village of Kumik is a touchstone for examining the deadly toxin that is affecting the entire world. Millions can—and will—die if this danger is not put in check  In the tradition of Bill McKibben and Michael Pollan, Jonathan Mingle writes with a voice that is compelling and informative, building a narrative around small village and people that you won’t soon forget.  Due out in 2015 from St. Martin’s Press.
