I really liked this book because I feel like it gives a realistic approach to how global warming is affecting the Earth. The author talks about global warming a process that happens over thousand of years, that it has been happening since the Chinese started burning forests a couple thousand years ago (from ice core samples), polar bears aren't in a ton of danger. and that the ice is melting faster in some areas than others, but not at the rate the environmentalists would have you believe, nor is it not happening at all like the conservatives would like to suggest. He also talks about an alternative what-if scenario if there was no global warming that suggests we'd probably be in another Ice Age soon.

A very balanced and well researched book on global warming that I think finds the middle ground in the argument nicely.
