Ideal Summary of IPCC Reports
The sub-subtitle of this book - The illustrated guide to the findings of the IPCC - says it all and says it accurately. Dire Predictions summarizes all the major points of the latest IPCC report in a beautifully illustrated, well and tightly written little book. In a series of mostly facing-two-page sub-sections, the authors provide clear explanations of the IPCC report while simultaneously answering all of the major global-climate-change-denier barbs.Was this review helpful?

The first half of the book deals with technical summaries of the nature of climate change and the methodology of its study. The second half addresses impacts and solutions. Throughout the book, the authors keep tightly focused and avoid drifting off-topic.
Dire Predictions is not a textbook, but it is a fine supplement to either another textbook (there are none as well written, however) or the IPCC reports themselves.
