Summary

Tons of ink has been spent explaining and analyzing the root causes of the greenhouse effect and exploring possible corrective steps in order to stop global warming.

To some, the culprit is irresponsible human activity, namely our carbon footprint on water, land, and air, which pollutes our natural resources and takes a toll on our quality of life.

To others, climate change is just part of a natural course, and humans are just the victims suffering the inevitable consequences.

Far more than a hotly debated issue, climate change is a reality; it is a factor transforming the face of our planet slowly but steadily, and as such, it definitely deserves thorough study.

Delving into the mysteries of climate change.

Voiced in easy-to-follow, comprehensive language, Climate Change is an eye-opening audiobook intending to explore the roots of the issue, discuss its various implications, shed light on the consequences on our life, and examine our alternatives in preventing disaster.

Find out what caused the alarming greenhouse effect and to what extent the rising Earth temperatures are due to the gas emissions of industries, the fumes of our vehicles, deforestation, aerosols, and waste dumped in our seas, lakes, and rivers.

Learn how our daily rat race made us deaf to the screams of our ailing planet until biodiversity loss took irreversible dimensions.

Knowledge is power, and Climate Change aspires to make a powerful tool in raising public awareness.

Let’s take action!

Alarmed about the serious effects, the global community decided to move on to corrective steps in an attempt to harness the disastrous consequences of climate change.

Get insight into the climate-change policy that intends to eliminate iceberg melting and disruption of food security, and get informed about the key features of corporate climate-change strategy and the changes occurring in agriculture in an attempt to adapt to the new situation.

And the most important thing, find out what you can do to go "green", from using your car less to joining recycling programs, planting a tree, or making your home energy efficient.

In two words, our planet’s future is still in our hands. Let’s make sure it is the rosy future deserved by our children!

Get Climate Change now! Let’s take action all together and give our planet a chance!

Threatening Phenomenon

To begin this review, I will say that I found that the amount of useful scientific information contained in this book is low. The author gives a cursory introduction to the greenhouse warming theory, then presents a series of graphs to illustrate how increasing CO2 is related to atmospheric and oceanic heating induced by greenhouse warming. He doesn't address the scientific methodologies in how this data was collected and analyzed, nor does he examine the uncertainties in the data he presents. He simply assumes that the data and his interpretation are established facts. He then sallies forth into lengthy speculations of very gloomy economic and sociologic outcomes.
Climate scientists use computer models to estimate how solar energy is absorbed by the earth, and how it is either re-radiated into space or how it accumulates in the earth's atmosphere and oceans. These models are based on physical principals with as much detail as is currently possible to simulate on a computer. However, there are some basic scientific concerns, first about whether greenhouse warming is the only cause of the climate trends we see today, and also about how reliably the climate models are able to predict the climate effects, we are observing today.

This is a VERY important book.

This collection of genuine scientific papers makes the climate issues very clear and understandable. The motivations for the negative discussions is also illuminated.

Highly recommended.

I am a chemist with an advanced academic degree who follows the scientific climate change debate in my spare time as closely as I am able. I try to be as objective as possible, and thus I listen to materials from 'both sides of the aisle', which is how I came to purchase and listen to this book.

Compelling evidence

This very factual and compelling book explains the basics of climate change -- for example, why global warming produces heavier rainfall, snow, and storm surges in some places. Of great interest to me were the facts surrounding increasing wildfires in California. The facts are sobering, but in the chapter on the role of clean energy, the author describes significant progress. Every American should listen to this book.

A must listen. We are in BIG trouble.

I listened to this book on audible and will be buying the kindle edition as well. Excellent information completely backed up with hard science that paints a dire picture of the future. I am convinced we are in a "too little too late" position due to the unpopular political decisions that must be made on a global scale. I fervently hope our current administration will be held accountable for its inaction and denials...at the time of this review, the Fourth National Climate Assessment, just prematurely released two days ago on Black Friday while the public was distracted rather than as planned in December. Shameful. This book should be required reading for all schools. If you have any doubt at all about human-induced climate change, please listen to this book.

A good review, but some sloppy bits

Not the easiest to listen, but a good condensed review of the issues at hand. What annoyed me (maybe more than it should), was that I (as a non-native speaker) could find quite some types. Several editions after the first, these should be sorted out.

A climate change primer.

For even those of us that have a broad-brush understanding of climate change, the supporting science, the implications of non-action and the need for worldwide action, this book serves as a valuable update on our current standing, and a reminder that there’s much each of us can do, from personal choices about our homes, transportation, and even diet, to political action and advocacy.

Good information!

A little heady and could’ve used some illustrations! But overall, a pretty darn comprehensible book about the scary path we are headed down.

SPOT ON! A MUST-READ FOR POLICY-MAKERS.

Takes less than an hour to listen, and absolutely blows out of the water claims that human-caused emissions of carbon dioxide can or do have any significant effect on Earth's climate variations. A must-listen for every official policy-maker at every level, before they unwittingly destroy our economies, and downgrade the way of life to which we have become accustomed.

Outstanding

Outstanding extremely short summary of the case for skepticism with regard to the hypothesis of the anthropogenic nature of the "climate change" we've seen since 1970 (the astute reader will recall that GMT actually declined from the 1940s to the 1970s, during a highly industrialized time, bringing on a low-level panic over "global cooling".

There is no least. The book is excellent. Excellent and well explained in the detail. I wish people would read this book and begin to realize how they have been duped.

Best Climate Change Book.

Best Climate Change Book,"Other books tell the science of climate change, or the politics. This says what will really happen."

A Valuable Resource,

Worth the price for the science chapters alone. Clarifies the skeptic's argument and brushes away obfuscation. Makes solid arguments that are easy to understand. Advocates practical and affordable approaches to potential warming.
