What stands out most about the Rough Guide is that Henson goes beyond presenting the science and solutions in a vacuum, like so many other guides do. Rather, in Chapter 4 "Debates & Solutions" Henson acknowledges the societal and political context in which climate change sits, including the highly polarized debates around the issue. He doesn't shy from exploring the contours of the debates, including what's at stake. Rather than take a position, he lends a keen eye to dissecting and trying to get to the roots of those debates and fairly represent all sides. In the end, Henson does not take a position on whether or how climate change should be addressed. Rather he organizes, summarizes, and clarifies the menu of approaches that we could take as individuals and as a society.
Henson's work has been recognized by national leaders, scientific groups, and other groups from all walks of society. The 2nd edition of the same book was shortlisted for the Royal Society's Prizes for Science Books in 2007.Read more ›
The Rough Guide to Climate Change is an easy read on what can be quite a dry topic. Henson does well in making the information accessible and easy to understand without writing down to his audience. While I read it knowing something of climate change, I learned a lot and think it would be a good resource for anyone wanting to learn more.
