Reviews

"The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change will tickle your fancy while expanding your mind. Highly recommended."
--Martin Weitzman, Professor of Economics, Harvard University
"A clear, concise rendition of the story of human-induced climate change, candid and yet brimming with warm-hearted humor and well-founded optimism. Gently persuasive, beautifully illustrated... an innovative springboard for discussion of what we can do as individuals and as a society to turn down the heat in our planetary 'compost pile.'"
--John Michael Wallace, Professor Emeritus, Department of Atmospheric Sciences, University of Washington
"Are you curious about the science and economics of global warming? You can find many dull books on the subject. A better bet is The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change, which tickles and teaches at the same time. Who says that sophistication is only in equations?"
--William Nordhaus, Sterling Professor of Economics, Yale University
"Grady Klein and Yoram Bauman are a national treasure. The economics of climate policy has never been more accessible."
--Kevin Hassett, Senior Fellow and Director of Economic Policy Studies, American Enterprise Institute
"I know we're trashing the planet, but do we have to add to our misery by reading gloom and doom books about it? The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change offers another way: learn some serious science, evaluate strategies for change, and have a good laugh in the process."
--Annie Leonard, creator of The Story of Stuff
"Rarely do you read books that attempt to deal with the world's biggest problems and present the information in a way that the average public can absorb it. Bravo to Yoram Bauman and Grady Klein, and thank you on behalf of everyone who is deeply concerned about this issue."
--Mark Reynolds, Executive Director, Citizens Climate Lobby
"The... jokiness is subsumed by this publication's obvious educational credentials, manifested in its diligent thoroughness (200 pages) and excellent glossary of terms."
-- "Ecologist"
"[The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change is] not only a fun read to educate yourself or your crazy uncle about climate science basics, it's also full of practical information presented in simple but elegant illustrations and comic strips."
-- "Desmog blog"
"[The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change] is a story, rather than just a textbook...suitable for teachers to use as a well-written and comprehensive introduction to an understanding of the climate system and climate change...a good read for anyone interested in the basics of climate change science but not wanting to tackle a more traditional textbook."-- "Reports of the National Center for Science Education"
"An often amusing graphic primer about an issue the authors recognize as apocalyptically serious."
-- "Kirkus"
"Don't let the format fool you -- this is sophisticated stuff. [Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change] draws on science from the latest IPCC report and explains technologies and policies that can make a positive difference -- all kidding aside."
-- "Conservation Magazine"
"Everybody should pick up a copy, it does look pretty interesting."
-- "AOL's The Street"
"Illustrated with deceptively simple black-and-white art that masterfully supports the text, this book provides a skillful tour of the issues that face our developing world and it serves as a model of how educational works of this sort should be crafted."
-- "Publishers Weekly"
"It's difficult to imagine that a book about climate change could be easy to understand, let alone funny. But Yoram Bauman and Grady Klein's The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change, an illustrated book that walks readers through the basics of climate science, is both. ...approachable and engaging."
-- "Nature Conservancy"
"It's like An Inconvenient Truth meets Peanuts! (Not really, but that's somehow a very pleasant idea.)"
-- "The Stranger"
"Not only is [The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change] entertaining, it's packed full of facts, presented as cartoons and peppered with a few transparently-unrealistic zingers. You can read it in an afternoon, and so could your kid, or your grandparent. And thanks to the illustrations and simple analogies, I'd bet they will retain more of the information."
-- "Greenpeace's The EnvironmentaList Blog"
"So if you've sort of had it with graphs and numbers about climate change, you'll enjoy this irreverent new take on the future of our planet."
-- "Upworthy"
"The illustrations from Klein and text from Bauman present an important issue in such an accessible manner that it should be applauded."
-- "The SunBreak"
"There is a lot to like about this graphic book"
-- "Earth Island Journal"
"Yoram Bauman and Grady Klein find a way to make climate change humorous and comprehensible in this visuals-driven book."
-- "Los Angeles Times"
