A collection of more than 70 essays about global warming collected and compiled by the Union of Concerned Scientists. As with any collection the style and emphasis vary a bit from page to page, but there are many nice moments found here. What the authors make clear is that our natural environment has deep, personal meaning for a lot of people and that climate change is slowly degrading a form of cultural heritage just as much as it is reworking our ecosystems.
