Review

"Keeping Our Cool is a wonderful gift from a premier climate scientist to the rest of us. In the most reader-friendly prose, Andrew Weaver explains clearly and honestly what scientists do - and do not - know about our overheated planet. Andrew Weaver has given the rest of us a great gift - a clear, non-forbidding tour through the current state of climate science. Keeping Our Cool acknowledges our deepest fears even as it respects our intelligence." -- Ross Gelbspan, author: The Heat Is On and Boiling Point

"Andrew Weaver, one of the world's foremost climate modellers, answers the otherwise confusing questions of climate change with confidence and clarity." -- James Hoggan, Chair, The David Suzuki Foundation and founder of DeSmogBlog

"At last, a look at climate that is accessible, fascinating and ultimately, a call for action. Over the past century, humanity has become so powerful we are altering the chemical makeup of the atmosphere. Keeping Our Cool: Canada in a Warming World is an insider's story of climate change. Andrew Weaver is a distinguished scientist who has been a major contributor to the Nobel prizewinning work of the IPCC. Beset by naysayers and skeptics, pressures from corporations and laggard politicians, Weaver keeps us focused on the science and the urgent need to act. A gripping narrative, this should be the final alarm that galvanizes us to move onto a different energy path of renewables and efficiency." -- David Suzuki, Founder, The David Suzuki Foundation

"It is crucial that Canadians understand the stakes in the climate debate, and Andrew Weaver has both the credentials and the straightforward style to get that job done. This is a necessary book." -- Bill McKibben, author: Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future
