Companion to the PBS documentary
Richard B. Alley is a professor of geology at Penn State University and a member of the National Academy of Sciences. He was a member of the UN climate change committee that was awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. He lives in State College, Pennsylvania.
"This optimistic book ought to convince even the most obstinate climate-change denier." -- Publishers Weekly "Starred Review. Alley thoroughly explains the dynamics of global warming and its negative consequences, and parses the economic benefits of renewable energy. He also forthrightly addresses `Climategate,' the politicization of science, and common misperceptions that stoke skepticism about what he convincingly demonstrates is the `solid science' of global warming. Alley concludes with suggestions for a `measured transition' to a combination of wind, solar, sea, and geothermal power. Alley's lively and positive Earth `operating manual' is the substantial companion book for a new PBS series that will air in April to mark Earth Day." -- Booklist
