A glimpse of What's the Worst that Could Happen?
NCSE is pleased to offer a free preview (PDF) of Greg Craven's What's the Worst that Could Happen? A Rational Response to the Climate Change Debate (Perigee, 2009). The preview consists of chapter 1, "The Decision Grid: What's the Worst that Could Happen? (Or Giant Mutant Space Hamsters)," which engagingly discusses ways to think about the probabilities and consequences of global warming (and less likely scenarios).
Praising What's the Worst that Could Happen? Bill McKibben commented, "This book trumps most of our accounts of the global warming crisis, partly for its good humor and straightforward logic, and partly because the author has actually figured out what actions make sense. Changing your lightbulb will help a little, but changing the political debate will help enormously — and this book will get you started down that path."
