    One thought on “The Global Warming Reader: A Century of Writing about Climate Change”

    1. This is a collection of pieces written about global warming and its associated climate change. It is divided it to three parts: science, politics, and impact. The pieces in the science section cover research done over the past one hundred years or so; the pieces in the politics section present both sides of the issue—the science based and the science skeptics, although the majority are on the science side; the pieces in the impacts section look on the effects of global warming, both in general [...]

    2. Bill McKibben has put together an excellent introduction and overview of the single most important issue our world is facing. I got exactly what I was looking for - an overview for the lay reader struggling to understand and make sense of a complex, highly technical topic. He divides the book into three section: Science, Politics and Impact. I struggled to understand some of the information in the Science section, but I understood enough to feel like I can talk more intelligently about it. The P [...]

    3. A rather diverse collection of writing on climate change. I enjoyed the ocean acidification article and letters from the religious leaders. It was also interesting (and infuriating) to read what the right wing climate skeptics thought. However, many of the articles were truncated for length and some were barely mentions, which made for frustrating reading.

    4. This is an outstanding collection of various key documents in the history of our understanding of global warming. It provides both an informative view into the history of the science behind global warming and a broad collection of responses to this reality, which makes this book both extremely gripping and very useful as a reference.

    5. “The Global Warming Reader”, edited by environmentalist Bill McKibben, provides a good overview of the climate crisis and global warming over the past hundred years. The book is divided into three sections: science, politics, and impact. Each section contains environmental writings by people from all walks of life, including a few by Mr. McKibben. It is a worthwhile read.

    6. Great and scary at the same time. A must-read. It looks at climate change from political, scientific, journalistic and sociological perspectives. And it makes very clear the fact that we must do something now.

    7. A must-have book for the sustainability nerd, with many of the key essays in the history of the climate change issue.

    8. B+ Some good stuff in here - a lot of historical stuff, but really gives a good picture of global warming in various ways.
