From Jonathan Mingle’s website:
The stories of black carbon and Kumik come together in Fire and Ice, which traces black carbon’s dark fingerprints in Zanskar, and around the world. Combining cultural history, detailed reportage, climate and combustion science, and the dramatic account of one village’s collective journey of imagination and resilience, Fire and Ice investigates an unlikely source of light on a darkening horizon—reminding us what we can all accomplish when we come together, and get down to work.
