This is a book about the psychology of climate change. Sternfeld took a number of high-quality prints of the faces of participants in a 2005 climate conference. Each print highlights a degree of shock and upset. These are interspersed with news stories. The book's layout highlights the objectivity of information - the faux 'readout' cover emphasises this. The contrast with the subjectivity of the emotions is striking. The overall effect is very powerful.

This was not exactly what I was expecting (which was a photo book). It has photos in it but it's more of a protest book showing photos and statements made by participants in a global climate change conference in 2005 (which the USA did not attend).
