Publisher's Summary

Monster wildfires in Australia, January golfers in PEI, ruined fruit crops in California, snowless ski runs in Switzerland, starving polar bears in the North, devastated trees in Stanley Park. Climate change is no longer a vague threat. The climate change we are in store for over the next few centuries will be larger and occur faster than at any time in the last 10,000 years.

Brilliantly researched, Keeping Our Cool is a comprehensive and engaging examination and explanation of global warming, with a specific emphasis on climate change in Canada. In an engaging and accessible way, Weaver explains the levels of greenhouse gas emissions needed to stabilize the climate and offers solutions and a path toward a sustainable future.

Critic Reviews

"Colourful and outspoken academic [Andrew Weaver] ... gives a sobering account of climate change and includes colourful commentary on the increasingly wacky weather." (Edmonton Journal)
"Weaver is one of Canada’s most influential thinkers on global warming, an expert on how oceans shape climate." (The Globe and Mail)
"It is crucial that Canadians understand the stakes in the climate debate, and Andrew Weaver has both the credentials and the straightforward style to get that job done. This is a necessary book." (Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future and The End of Nature)
