    Warm And Fuzzy For The Global Warming Survival Handbook

    This funny book has a dose of reality, a sense of humor, and some wonderful tips for helping prevent or live through Global Warming. Though the book was silly and fun, maybe we should get a bit more serious on protecting the Earth. I still enjoyed reading it nonetheless.
