Andrew Guzman’s book “Overheated” does an excellent job explaining how climate change will affect us in the future. Guzman, serving as Dean at USC Gould School of Law, felt it was his duty to educate the public with the consequences that climate change will bring. His approach is not to prove to the readers that climate change is occurring but rather to show them how it will affect our everyday lives and ultimately the preventative measures that should be taken to reduce this devastation.
While Guzman does not have a degree in the science field, I think his background in law is quite helpful when presenting his ideas. The way in which he supports his claims and evidence comes across very credible and reliable. Guzman knows the importance of facts and carries this theme throughout the book.
For those unfamiliar with the evidence supporting changes in climate, this book may be a bit difficult to follow. Guzman does a good job refreshing us with what is taking place but this book is definitely not an introduction to climate change.
