I love these too as an adult and I knew Yoram way back, but I am so delighted to share this and the rest of the Cartoon Introduction books with everyone I know.
Sure, you don't get a scientific explanation of what and why climate change happens, but most people don't want that. Besides, there's a multitude of books that cover that - this book can be read in one enjoyable afternoon, giving you a summary of the issues.
Climate change is a serious topic and this book treats it as such. It has plenty of opportunity to be cynical, such as when explaining the Tragedy of the Commons. But fortunately, the authors are hopeful that we can tackle the problem.
As a climate communication specialist (climatebites.org) I am always on the lookout for clear, accurate, readable explanations of climate change for general audiences. This is the simply best -- and certainly the most fun --- climate change primer to date. It's surprisingly comprehensive covering the basic science, economics and policy issues.
I would give it 6 stars if I could.
