Bill McKibben ð 1 FREE READ Ly difficult to deny What is happening to our planet And what can we do about it The Global Warming Reader provides than thirty five answers to these burning uestions from than one hundred years of engagement with the topic Here is Elizabeth Kolbert's groundbreaking essay The Darkening Sea Michael Crichton's skeptical view of climate change George Monbio. Bill McKibben has put together an excellent introduction and overview of the single most important issue our world is facing I got exactly what I was looking for an overview for the lay reader struggling to understand and make sense of a complex highly technical topic He divides the book into three section Science Politics and Impact I struggled to understand some of the information in the Science section but I understood enough to feel like I can talk intelligently about it The Politics and Impact selections were just what I wanted My only criticism is that the impacts of global warming and our understanding of it are developing so rapidly that this two year old book already feels outdated For background and history of this issue however it is a fabulous introduction
