Promotional Information

James Hansen is the single most credible scientific voice worldwide on the issue of global warming. His groundbreaking predictions about global warming have been right all along. Publication coincides with the Copenhagen Conference in early December 2009. A must-read title for anyone who has read Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth and Our Choice (out in November). Widespread publicity and review coverage expected on publication.

About the Author

Perhaps best known for bringing global warming to the world's attention in the 1980s when he first testified before Congress, Dr. James Hansen is considered the world's leading climatologist. The head of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, he served as Al Gore's science advisor for An Inconvenient Truth. He teaches at the Department of Earth &Environmental Sciences at Columbia University, lectures at universities and other institutions throughout the world and has been interviewed in the New York Times and other publications. This is his first book.

Reviews

Hansen has been researching climate changes over the last 30 years and is considered an expert and the most prominent scientist in this country on the subject of global warming. His predictions for climate change have consistently been proven true. Here, he focuses on proving that global warming is occurring more rapidly than previously thought and that politicians are more concerned about supporting policies that please their special interest groups. Hansen vehemently recommends phasing out all coal usage and drastically reducing carbon monoxide in our atmosphere. Verdict Going against current thinking, this book is sure to garner strong reactions. It's a compelling, readable wake-up call that will appeal to those who have read Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth and anyone interested in the current global warming crisis and looking for ways that individuals can make a difference.-Gloria Maxwell, Metropolitan Community Coll., Kansas City, MO Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

'When the history of the climate crisis is written, Hansen will be seen as the scientist with the most powerful and consistent voice calling for intelligent action to preserve our planet's environment.' Al Gore 'Jim Hansen is the planet's great hero. He offered us the warning we needed twenty years ago, and has worked with enormous courage ever since to try and make sure we heeded it. We'll know before long if that effort bears fruit. If it does, literally no one deserves more credit than Dr. Hansen.' Bill McKibben
