this is good, audible needs better options

this is a good book for those who don't really know much about climate change. they machine gun "just the facts" at you from a British Centric perspective. this makes the book informative, but some of the information is out of date.

  • Overall

LEFT ME COLD!!!

Heavily geared towards UK readers. Started out with a fairly balanced approach but ended up sounding like a Greenpeace propaganda piece.
