A Short, Hopeful Guide to Climate Change

We rated this book:


A Short, Hopeful Guide to Climate Change is beautifully written and presents a broad range of science-based facts about the current climate crisis in a thoroughly innovative and easy-to-understand format. If you’re suffering from an overload of pessimistic nihilism regarding climate change and searching for a dose of refreshing optimistic realism, then this is the book for you.

With a storytelling sensibility reminiscent of the popular Cosmos series, McGann somehow manages to cover the entire history of the Earth from the formation of its atmosphere to the small blip of time humans have actually been around in a way that showcases both the fragile balance our ecosystems depend on and the mind-boggling ingenuity of the human species.

Combined with references and explanations of current events and the latest cutting-edge scientific research into combating our warming planet, McGann arms readers with facts while encouraging us to remember that what makes humanity great is the very thing that can save us from ourselves. A link to the author’s website is included at the end of the book, which leads to source materials and references to aid in further research for interested readers.
