    DescriptionLong known for her insightful and thought-provoking political journalism, author Elizabeth Kolbert now tackles the controversial and increasingly urgent subject of global warming. In what began as groundbreaking three-part series in the" New Yorker," for which she won a National Magazine Award in 2006, Kolbert cuts through the competing rhetoric and political agendas to elucidate for Americans what is really going on with the global environment and asks what, if anything, can be done to save our planet. Now updated and with a new afterword, "Field Notes from a Catastrophe" is the book to read on the defining issue and greatest challenge of our times.

    Review quote
    "[A] small miracle of concision, gaining by its brevity and its plan of attack a rhetorical power that elucidates, rises to meet and deftly answers the historic crisis in which we find ourselves."--"Los Angeles"" Times""" "Important Precise and measured. Visiting an Inupiat community in Alaska, a butterfly expert in England, or a midlevel Bush administration official in Washington, D.C., [Kolbert] lets readers connect the dots to form a frightening (and still avoidable) vision of our future [Grade: ] A.""--Entertainment Weekly""" "If you have time this year for just one book on science, nature or the environment, this should be it.""--""San Diego""""Union""-Tribune" "Passionate well-researched.""--New York Times Book Review""
