Book News
While the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPP), established in 1988, evaluates the risk of human-caused climate change and provides periodic assessment reports, these authoritative and accurate sources of information are relatively impenetrable for the general reader. Esteemed climate scientists, Mann and Kump, provide concise and clear essential reading for citizens living in a world threatened by climate change. They explain important concepts about climate change that empower the reader to make informed decisions about actions that can make a difference. Expanding upon the findings documented in the IPCC 5th Assessment Report with illustrations for non-scientists, this updated second edition discusses new concerns, such as hidden tipping points in the climate system, a brief lull in the progressive warming of the planet, the news that 2014 was the warmest year on record, the acidification of the ocean and loss of oxygen from the ocean’s coastal regions and interior, as well as glimmers of hope arising from an emphasis on sustainability.

While of necessity a dry and technical read, and likely over the heads of pseudoscience wingnuts, it is an excellent resource.
