Book Description

These 65 essays reflect my personal journey to understand the three modern-day horsemen of the apocalypse who stalk mankind: climate change, peak oil, and population growth. What I found was not reassuring. But don’t take my word for any of this. Learn about the issues and make up your own mind.
If you come to the same conclusions I did, then you really need to start thinking about how to prepare your children and grandchildren for a world that will be very different from the one they see around them today … a world as challenging as anything that mankind has ever faced.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really liked May 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We've all heard of global warming by now as it’s been all over the news. This particular book is a series of essays that were produced for a blog. As stated throughout the book there are naysayers and there will probably always be. I myself am not one and I did find them interesting reading so I'm glad I took the time to read them. I believe he has quite a few valid points.

1.0 out of 5 stars Global warming opinion without portfolio. July 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the most content less book on Global warming yet. No citations, poor understanding of science and the scientific method. This is the book for the true believer. Not worth the price. Even at $0
If the computer models that have forecasted global warming actually worked, Wall Street and silicon vally venture capitalist would have long ago taken them private. This has not happen. It Is unlikely to happen until we have a math that can handle the problem of modeling chaos. We are not even close.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read but... June 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book effectively presents the main arguments on Global Warming and evaluates them in his views. While he is accurate and has great points, he also tends to repeat himself...a lot. But still, of you are interested in the climate change argument I highly recommend that you read this! I would of gave it 5 stars if it wasn't for the amount of times he repeats himself. Enjoy!
