Global Weirdness

by Climate Central

New York: Pantheon, 2012. 240 pages.

Global Weirdness, according to reviewer Anne U. Gold, “explains the basic climate system, the greenhouse effect, and the consequences of a changing climate, as well as solutions and adaptation strategies, in sixty simple, easy-to-understand, and concise essays.” While concerned that the audience for the book is not clear, and lamenting the absence of a table of contents and index, Gold recommends it as “an interesting read for readers of all ages and backgrounds,” and describes it as “an important book that helps the climate science
community talk about their work using understandable and compelling language.”
