Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very important book. It goes way beyond whether we are in Global Warming or not. It assumes that we are, as well as do all of the creditable scientists who study the question today. The book tells what is really going on and what our politicians either have no clue about or are unwilling to confront.
The problem is that Global Warming has been studied by the Natural Sciences. They can give the scientific explanation of things and how the problem will progress over linear time. However the problem needs to be studied by the social scientists, as a cultural, ethnic, class, religious, over population problem which will present as a Global catastrophe with in the next several decades.
There are so many ideas explored, violence... the Holocost, Darfur, other ethnic wars, how history either does or does not repeat itself. Welzer explains how the poor will always suffer the most, how Africa is already suffering horrible wars because the land is drying up, the trees are gone, the water is limited. How will we as a society deal with hords of immigrants who are already approaching our and Northern European shores? The problem is unblievably complex and deserves a Global not a country by country response. If you care about the planet's future, read this book. It will take you far beyond the current rhetoric. A profound and intelligent assessment of Global Warming of today.

Format: Hardcover
This was a well written, and interesting book though it was somewhat worrying.
It is a translation of a work by an academic but it is easy to follow and understand.

It is quite short and some of the content is quite general but I felt that I learned a lot from it.
