Haunting and Frightening and Beautifully Told

The prose is gorgeous, the subject matter both terrifying and wonderous, and the detail and research on the topic fabulous. It's hard to grieve for some of those will be devastated and impossible to forgive those who deny the relentless future for personal gain. Jeff, I hope you will continue and you really do have a wonderful speaking voice. This is truly good. Thank you for the time and effort and personal sacrifice you endured to give this to us.

Eye Opener

This should be required reading for everyone., whether climate concerned or climate change denial. The author isn’t the best choice to narrate, as his voice is relatively flat - use specialists if you aren’t one. But an exceedingly interesting and topical book.
