Finally, a book that really sums up our building environmental situation without so much confusing scientific clutter. As a student of environmental law, I have learned to navigate my way through the lingo, but most people find it somewhat alienating and abandon any notions they may have had to try and understand climate change. This book is filled with important information that is explained clearly and concisely.
Also, there are few sources that can be trusted more than Bill McKibben when it comes to this subject matter. His heart and his priorities seem to be exactly where they should be. He walks the precarious line between economic viability and environmental responsability very clearly, while too many others leave issues muddied and confusing.
I have gifted this to many already and will continue to get it into the hands of as many people as possible this year. This really is a book I think everyone must read.

I read this book over a year ago, but the earth's climate is changing quickly. Do believe that we can turn around now and reduce CO2 to below 350 ppm is a fallacy. Otherwise this book was very informative and I applaud Mr. McKibben for his work.
