Customer Review

on August 21, 2010
I found Mr. McCutcheon's book to be quite objective. The subject is still somewhat controversial, but he is able to make the case while acknowledging arguments from those that remain non-believers. His introduction: "What's This Book About" lays out his message. He discusses climate, weather and the greenhouse effect, and then moves on to what will eventually happen if we don't change our ways. No book on the subject would be complete without a discussion of politics, which he deftly handles. He wraps it up with a discussion of what people are doing and what we can do to reduce our contributions to Global Warming. He includes a comprehensive Glossary and presents information in both English Units (feet, degrees Fahrenheit, etc.) and Metric Units (meters, degrees Celsius, etc.). He also lists many web sites for additional information or to learn more about the subject--for example, how to calculate your carbon-footprint. There is enough material in this thin (103 pp) volume to keep the interest of parents who will be called on to discuss many of Chuck's points. I found the book educational and entertaining. It is definitely worth a read for the kids in your household.
