5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good review 17 décembre 2010
Par D. Brooks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Lacking in some detail, but a good overall overview of the science. Faithful to the scientific organizations and not another shill to the fossil fuel-funded think tanks.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Valuable Resource 19 mars 2009
Par Meghan Larson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Authors May and Caron provide a clear, well articulated picture of what global warming is and how it affects us. The different chapters break the issue down topic by topic in an easy to read fashion. This book goes one step further and provides the reader with practical solutions for change that everyone can use. As an Environmental Science professional with a strong background in climate change I would recommend this book as a great go-to resource for everyone. A perfect blend of hard hitting facts, practical solutions and just a splash of humour!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very informative book on climate change 7 février 2009
Par Pokey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I found this book overall to be very informative on the issues of climate change. The book explains greenhouse gases and how those gases affect the climate, the carbon cycle, man's impact on greenhouse gas emissions, what people can do to decrease their carbon footprint, and much more. It is a great book for getting people up to speed climate change.

I definitely recommend this book for people who want to learn the basics. People who already know a bit about the issues of climate change might even learn a little bit. I did.

Unfortunately, I have to detract 1 star for a lack of objectivity and some areas of the book could stand to be condensed.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Positive Reaource for on a Critical Subject 19 mars 2009
Par Sera Thompson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book offers a simple and easy to reference guide into one of the most complex and defining issues of our time. Outlining the possible effects of global warming and how they are linked to almost every other social and ecological challenge we are face locally and globally, this book is a reminder that we all need to be a part of the solution.

I applaud May and Caron for their clear writing and solution orientation. All of us need to understand the complexities, trade offs and potential ways forward and this book is a wonderful resources in that direction! I recommend it to beginners and climate change champions alike.
