Publisher's Summary

From Joseph Romm, Chief Science Advisor for National Geographic's Years of Living Dangerously series and one of Rolling Stone's "100 people who are changing America," Climate Change offers user-friendly, scientifically rigorous answers to the most difficult (and commonly politicized) questions surrounding what climatologist Lonnie Thompson has deemed "a clear and present danger to civilization."

New questions about climate change addressed in this guide include: 

  • Analysis of the Paris climate agreement, including the United States' withdrawal
  • Implications of the clean energy revolution, from solar and wind power to batteries and electric cars
  • The latest on climate science, including updates on efforts to stem or slow climate change
  • Insights into what Donald Trump's presidency means for climate action in the US and internationally

As the global response to climate change continues to evolve, Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know® offers smart, unbiased answers to the most difficult questions in an area dogged by misunderstanding and politicization.

Informative and thorough. A must read

An informative and thorough review of the current science and information on climate change. An important read for all to understand not only the details of climate change causes and impact, but also to be able to effectively advocate for climate change action.

Great Book on Climate Change

Romm knows climate change as well as anyone, and presents it in a very thorough, well thought out manner. He is scientifically accurate, but nteresting. My only technical complaint is his slighting the drawdown capabilities of regenerative agriculture. But there is a paucity of peer-reviewed literature on that, so it is understandable. The reader could be a lot better. He spits out his words, and sounds amateurish. Even so, this is a great book, thanks to Romm.
