Editorial Reviews

While there are still those who dismiss global warming as a myth, authors Emma Tompkins and Emily Boyd operate under the scientifically-bolstered assumption that climate change is an irrefutable fact, and though they posit the troubling idea that perhaps its effects may already be irreversible, they still remain optimistic that a collective change in behavior may be able to prevent widespread catastrophe in their well-researched, common-sense overview of this thorny issue.
As divisive and weighty as the topic can be, James Adam’s skilled, pitch-perfect delivery maintains an optimistic and engaging tone throughout, making for a captivating listen from beginning to end.

Publisher's Summary

Climate change is the greatest single problem we face as a planet. This important introduction skillfully guides us through the complex mix of scientific, political, social, and environmental issues at play in order to examine the manifold threats it poses and to explore the possible futures for our world. Focusing on the fact that the "point of no return" may in fact have already been passed, Boyd and Tompkins highlight the urgent need to start actively adapting to our changing climate if we want to avoid complete catastrophe.

What didn’t you like about James Adam’s performance?

Very boring. But difficult subject. I don't think he would convince anyone who was on the fence.

Could you see Climate Change: Bolinda Beginner Guides being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore
