As T.C.Boyle has said, this book is "nothing less than a Silent Spring (Rachel Carson) for our time," and I agree absolutely. If you're going to read just ONE book on climate change, then this is the one to read. Kolbert cites all the requisite scientific sources, but she writes narrative that any nonscience person can comprehend. The chapters were originally written for The New Yorker magazine, and they are collectively wonderfully inclusive, topics ranging from the crisis on a small island off the coast of Alaska, to floating houses in the Netherlands and the extinction of the gold toad. It's an incredibly fine study.
