Gives a good overview of global warming and peak oil. The language is non-technical; unfortunately the author has some trouble with choosing the right verb tense and construction. Howecer, English is not an easy language. I would have liked to have seen more about the politics and funding of the climate change denial industry, especially following the Heartland Institute revelations.

An OK primer to start a more serious examination of climate change issues. However, the verb tense and noun plurality issues drive me crazy.

As a person who majored in environmental issues in college I can say that the information presented in this book is fine, but the way it is presented is just terrible. How on earth is this material written by a Ph.D.? (And then passed through, I'm assuming, at least an editor.) If you're looking for information on how our world is facing problems dealing with climate change and peak oil, obviously this book is for you. If you are irked by poor writing, it is not.
