    Finally someone has put all the scientific findings in a package that allows all the puzzle pieces to form a more complete and concrete picture of exactly what is happeining, how bad it is, how bad it could get, and how soon we will see it.

    This is a must read.

    In the intro Lynas admits that at one point in his research he considered that it might be smarter to not publish his findings and instead give his family and friends a quiet heads-up since he was uncovering specific information directly related to survival. (There are specifics like which states in the US will likely still have food and water when a certain temperature threshold is reached, etc.)

    If you want to remain ignorant or in a state of denial about global warming and what it will mean to you, your children, grandchildren, all of humanity and the millions of other species, then don't even open the cover of this book. On the other hand if you like your facts without the sugar coating then not only read this book but plan on sending copies to everyone you care about. I exagerate not.

    a must read

    This is one of the most interesting and educational books on the subject of climate change that I have read. Mark Lynas does a great job of explaining the science, and the correlating DVD from National Geographic, Six Degrees Could Change the World, is equally excellent. Read this book and watch the DVD and you can't help but understand climate change with much more clarity. I have purchased several copies of both to give as educational gifts because they are so easy to understand for anyone. Everyone needs to read this book. If nothing else, sit down in the library and read the "Choosing our Future" section at the back. It will change your mind.
