    DescriptionOur most widely respected environmental writer brings together the essential voices on global warming, from its 19th-century discovery to the present With the rise of extreme weather events worldwide--witness the devastation wrought by Hurricanes Sandy, Irene, and Katrina, and the sustained drought across the American West--global warming has become increasingly difficult to deny. What is happening to our planet? And what can we do about it? "The Global Warming Reader" provides more than thirty-five answers to these burning questions, from more than one hundred years of engagement with the topic. Here is Elizabeth Kolbert's groundbreaking essay "The Darkening Sea," Michael Crichton's skeptical view of climate change, George Monbiot's biting indictment of those who are really using up the planet's resources, NASA scientist James Hansen's testimony before the U.S. Congress, and clarion calls for action by Al Gore, Arundhati Roy, Naomi Klein, and many others. "The Global Warming Reader" is a comprehensive resource, expertly edited by someone who lives and breathes this defining issue of our time.

    Review quote
    "Relevant, timely, and engaging . . . Among the many books available on global warming, this one is unique. . . . One would be hard pressed to create a better list of documents. . . . Highly recommended for lay readers, professionals and activists, and a worthy addition to any general library collection." --"Electronic Green Journal"
