    In Storms of My Grandchildren, James Hansen - the nation's leading scientist on climate issues - speaks out for the first time with the full truth about global warming: the planet is hurtling even more rapidly than previously acknowledged to a climatic point of no return. Although Hansen was Al Gore's science adviser for the 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth, his recent data shows that our situation is even more dire today.

    Hansen is a great scientist but this book proves he is an even better citizen. It lays out his beliefs on climate changes and offers solutions like no book I have ever read. The conclusions are devasting and horrifying.

    It is very technical at times but that is excusable because Hansen helps you understand fully how quickly and grotesquely the deniers and critics have been with the science.

    You feel the pain of Hansen as he describes the events of the past few decades as science has been twisted and denied by lesser minds and far lesser men. It is a tragedy that we have little time to correct.

    This book spurred me to action. I cannot imagine a more important book to read at this time.

    Lawyers. Accountants. Software Engineers. That what Mom and Dad encouraged us to become. They were wrong. Gone is the age of "left-brain" dominance. The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: designers, inventors, teachers, storytellers - creative and emphatic "right-brain" thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn't.

    "Excellent Book"
    Overall

    I found this book very engaging and compelling. He makes an excellent case that the forces changing our society require a new way of thinking and in particular an emphasis on our more creative and integrative right brain.
