Description

Based on the analysis of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), but seen through the perspective of everyman journalist Philippe Squarzoni, this graphic novel explains how our environment functions; outlines the consequences of climate change and asks: is our society able to pursue a proactive policy in regard to ecological issues? In a tour de force of both artistic and informational presentation, with the impact of climate change on the US central to the narrative, Philippe Squarzoni weaves together scientific research, interviews with leading experts, personal reflections and a call for action starting at a grassroots level. One of the featured experts is Jean Jouzel, member of the IPCC (recipient with Al Gore of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize), who praised the final book on its thorough research and understanding of the facts.

Review quote

"A work on one of the most important topics of our time that is dense but comprehensible, informative and fascinating."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "The plethora of contributing experts, a detailed index, and its multifaceted exploration make this required reading for both the general public and subject specialists."--Booklist (Starred Review) "By populating his story with real characters and telling it in line drawings and word balloons, Squarzoni distills complex data into the stuff of intimate, compelling narrative."--OnEarth Magazine "This graphic novelist tells the true story of climate change."--Grist.org "Stunning, cinematic, and informative."--Cool Hunting "Thanks to Squarzoni, we see that the graphic novel format might be the best way to explain this information (and there is a lot of it) to the general public."--Comics Bulletin "If you've been meaning to get up to speed on the carbon cycle and all things climate science this summer, this is the book to be seen at the beach with."--Scientific American Online "Philippe Squarzoni's Climate Changed delineates the true horror story of our coming weather apocalypse through crisp illustrations."--Village Voice "The graphic novel Climate Changed makes the topic much more accessible for readers who aren't scientifically minded but who want to better understand the issue."--MTV Act
