A little tedious, not because it is hard to understand, but because it goes on and on. There is so much to this topic, and the author gives it all. Glad I read it.

Scientists like Henry Pollack deserve our respect and appreciation. Not just for their hard work, long hours, grueling travel schedule, being out in the elements, not seeing friends & family for weeks/months - but also because few scientists write books for non-scientists. And few are as well written as this.
Climate scientists, glaciologists and other Earth scientists are sounding the alarm, folks. What are you doing?
Our future depends upon informed and literate people on this climate change topic, supporting appropriate legislation and helping hold back the mindless, paralyzing fear that will halt efforts to mitigate this crisis and leave our children and grandchildren with life threatening problems to confront and misery in their lives.
