About this title

Synopsis:

Chronicles changes in the Earth's climate caused by increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere

From Library Journal:

Designed to complement a new traveling exhibit that recently opened in New York City, this politically impeccable book was written by the award-winning author of The Burning Season: The Murder of Chico Mendes and the Fight for the Amazon Rain Forest ( LJ 6/1/90). Illustrated with images by renowned nature photographers and introduced by the heads of the Environmental Defense Fund and the American Museum of Natural History, coproducers/publishers of the exhibit and book, it is even printed on recycled paper. Yet, though the reporting, writing style, editing, and photo editing are all good, the overall effect, which is not inexpensive, falls a bit flat. Revkin's clear and pleasant writing only hints at the passion and lyricism that could bring this critical and somewhat complicated issue to life. Furthermore, the recycled paper does not fulfill the images' potential, and the typeface is downright drab. Since books on this issue are not in short supply, this one is recommended specifically for middle and high school collections, where its clarity gives it an edge, and to those who want to review or preview the exhibit.
