Bill McKibben Ö The Global Warming Reader PDF

Our most widely respected environmental writer brings together the essential voices on global warming from its 19th century discovery to the present With the rise of extreme weather events worldwide witness the devastation wrought by Hurricanes Sandy Irene and Katrina and the sustained drought across the American West global warming has become increasingl This is a collection of pieces written about global warming and its associated climate change It is divided it to three parts science politics and impact The pieces in the science section cover research done over the past one hundred years or so; the pieces in the politics section present both sides of the issue—the science based and the science skeptics although the majority are on the science side; the pieces in the impacts section look on the effects of global warming both in general and specific like the greater impact on the poorer nations As in most anthologies the uality and interest of the contributions varies but Bill McKibben the editor does a good job over all with his selections I should mention that the two sides given coverage in the politics section are not given to give both sides a fair hearing but rather to see the cherry picking and denials of the the science skeptics as that side presents them I'm sure that someone somewhere writing on war said ”know thy enemy” The book should be of interest to those who want to understand on global warming in all its different aspects It should also serve to broaden ones experience on what has been written on global warming For the science skeptic it would probably all seem absurd except those pieces written from their perspective
