Read in February, 2009

Covers an astonishing breadth of scientific information, mostly fairly well explained for the layman without being condescending. I felt it was somewhat scattered in its presentation and occasionally crossed the line into sensationalism. Would have liked a more thorough section on what actions individuals can take (besides writing our elected representatives) - it seemed like the book set us up for all these horrible things that can happen because of climate change, but all the things that need to be done have to be done on a global level, so all we can do is hope that our nation's leaders get their acts together in time.
