    Most factual and understandable climage book

    Of the many books written on the topic of global warming and climate change, this one has impressed me in several ways. For one thing it lays out the science in a straightforward way. The book is honest and direct with the facts. It does not over-dramatize the problem as some other books have done. The reader is given the opportunity to respond to the issue without being beaten over the head with a political agenda. The case for global warming caused by humans burning fossil fuels however is made clear. Its effects in terms of impact are also spelled out in convincing detail. What I like best is the section on solutions. This is not a lets-be-green for a day feel good book. The solutions go well beyond just screwing in more efficient light bulbs or everyone doing their part. Specific changes to how we generate energy and transport people are spelled out. Coal will be a dominant source of electric power for the next several decades and this book provides a very practical and realistic insight into what needs to be done to reduce its impact on climate. I also like the fact that this book is up to date in that it includes the most recent results from the IPCC and the Bali confernece. There are several good books coming out on the subject of climate change, but I think this one is definitely worth the time to read.
