One of the best books to brandish for the cause of world environment. Global warming is something we can not afford to ignore and the world has to work hand in hand to tackle the problem. There is no victor in a world environment which if not managed promises havoc for all. It adds to Union Moujik, Collapse,The Weather Makers , to carry the story for joint socio-economic,political and environmental development.

This book is right in every detail, but incomplete. Al forgot to mention ways we can use today to counter what we want to avoid. Regognizing the truth is the first step to healing. We are in denial right now, and this book is not very much different. This book seems to ignore that we must both devise ways to shape a different future and put to use what we already know; whining about it is not enough. We could put a solar shield in Greenland to cool the snow. We could transform salted ocean water into drinking water to irigate parts of Sahara and grow trees there to stop the desert from producing hurricanes which then speed across the Atlantic and hit on U.S. shores. Technically, we can do it all. But are we willing to try or to whine, actually?
