Chris Turner is the author of five books and one of Canada’s leading writers and speakers on energy and sustainability. His bestsellers The Leap and The Geography of Hope were both National Business Book Award finalists. His most recent book, How to Breathe Underwater won the City of Calgary W.O. Mitchell Book Prize. Turner's writing and research has long focused on how the issue of climate change is framed in the public debate, and the national security frame depicted in The Age of Consequences is a compelling way of engaging diverse audiences about its impact. He lives in Calgary with his wife and two children. He is working on a new book about the oil sands, which will be published in Canada and internationally by Simon & Schuster in 2017.
