Résumé

"I know we're trashing the planet, but do we have to add to our misery by reading gloom-and-doom books about it ? The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change offers another way : learn some serious science, evaluate strategies for change, and have a good laugh in the process." Annie Leonard, creator of The Story of Stuff. "Are you curious about the science and economics of global warming ? You can find many dull books on the subject.
A better bet is The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change, which tickles and teaches at the same time. Who says that sophistication is only in equations ?" William Nordhaus, Sterling Professor of Economics, Yale university, and author of The Climate Casino : Risk, uncertainty, and Economics for a Warming World. "A clear, concise rendition of the story of human-induced climate change, candid and yet brimming with warm-hearted humor and well-founded optimism.
Gently persuasive, beautifully illustrated... an innovative springboard for discussion of what we can do, as individuals and as a society, to turn down the heat in our planetary "compost pile."" John Michael Wallace, Professor Emeritus, Department of Atmospheric Sciences, university of Washington, and coauthor of Atmospheric Science : An Introductory Survey. "Climate is no laughing matter - but it beats crying.
Maybe this is the secret passage into people's hearts and minds." James E. Hansen, Former Director, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, and author of Storms of My Grandchildren.
