From the Publisher"Tyler Volk takes the reader on a journey of the carbon cycle from the viewpoint of individual carbon atoms. He then compares the natural release of carbon into the biosphere to that released by our use of fossil fuels. Both serve to bring the science of the carbon cycle to the reader in understandable terms." — Wildlife Activist Magazine
"Tyler Volk's CO2 Rising is a finely crafted introduction to the greenhouse problem, taking as its protagonist a little carbon atom called Dave.... If there is one book on climate change that President-elect Barack Obama should read, it might well be Tyler Volk'sCO2 Rising. Its clear, simple exposition of atmospheric chemistry is so well-written that it might even convince past-presidents."

"... Volk introduces readers to Oiliver, Coaleen, and Methaniel, who unlike Dave were purposively extracted from the earth and have been in the biosphere for a much shorter period...
more than competent tour guides to the complexities of the carbon cycle." (For the full review,visit http://www.chemheritage.org/pubs/magazine/review_volk.html) — ZoeMarquardt, Chemical Heritage Newsmagazine
"... what sets CO2 Rising apart from other climate change books are its clear, concise and concrete explanations of how Earth's carbon cycle works... Dave and his fellow carbon atoms will give readers a new appreciation of how connected the world is — at least through the carbon we all share." — Erin Wayman, EarthMagazine
