Publishers WeeklyAlthough the title may prepare readers for stunning photographs with a gloomy message, they are unlikely to anticipate either the vast variety of scenes or the many arms of climate change and human impact depicted and described within this book. From busy urban centers, such as Tokyo and Chicago, where the average temperatures have risen significantly, or London and Venice, both addressing the threat of flooding to the isolated places that appear to be far from the reach of human impact, such as the North Pole or Rio de la Plato, Uruguay, each destination is accompanied by a brief description including the effects of climate change on the environment and the people. With landscapes, cityscapes, aerial views, portraits and even underwater shots, the variety of awe-inspiring photographs will remind readers help to reinforce that the earth is a place to be cherished and explored. The book maintains a balance as part armchair travelogue with an environmentalist agenda and will likely please both demographics. 100 color photos.
