About The Book

From best-selling author and illustrator Ron Barrett, who forecasted the weather in the classic picture book, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, now predicts how—thanks to climate change and other unpleasantries—the world will end!

With research and really scary text by Jim Parry, The Top Ten As We Hit Bottom is a darkly humorous collection of “Top Ten” lists that highlights the predicament global warming and other impending catastrophes have put us into.

Though some might call these lists “fake news” (we’re looking at you, Donald), these lists are compiled and culled from the world's most credible authorities like NASA, the UN, and the Union of Concerned Scientists. But coupled with darkly humorous illustrations, you’ll be laughing your way all the way down in our race toward the bottom!
Here are some Top 10 lists to whet your appetite for Earth’s impending doom:

  • “Top 10 species we’ll lose to climate change”
  • “Top 10 avalanches mostly caused by global warming”
  • “Top 10 climate change deniers”
  • “Top 10 times we almost had a nuclear war,”
  • “Top 10 things that will happen when the Yellowstone Supervolcano erupts,”
  • “Top 10 ways to try to stop an asteroid,”
  • “Top 10 signs that the earth is about to be swallowed by a black hole,”
  • “Top 10 ways a particle accelerator mishap could destroy the world,”
  • “Top 10 end-of-world cults you can join now.”
  • And many more!
