Book Description

1 April 2014
Based on the analysis of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), but seen through the perspective of everyman journalist Philippe Squarzoni, this graphic novel explains how our environment functions; outlines the consequences of climate change and asks: is our society able to pursue a proactive policy in regard to ecological issues? In a tour de force of both artistic and informational presentation, with the impact of climate change on the US central to the narrative, Philippe Squarzoni weaves together scientific research, interviews with leading experts, personal reflections and a call for action starting at a grassroots level. One of the featured experts is Jean Jouzel, member of the IPCC (recipient with Al Gore of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize), who praised the final book on its thorough research and understanding of the facts.

5.0 out of 5 stars What the world may become: a unique, visual, disconcerting introduction 6 July 2014
By Compulse-o-Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
5 stars for a perfect treatment of an imperfectly understandable future. Despite the importance of this topic to me, my family and my species, my knowledge is woefully lacking. I have been meaning to understand climate change for many years. Forays into understanding through popular science magazines and other journalistic venues have felt incomplete. I read this hefty tomb of visual non-fiction to correct that. It turns out the author wrote the book to remedy his own lack of knowledge.

Though written by an author living in France, and translated into English, nothing is lost in the translation, and of course the visual nature of the material transcends written language. The material blends opinions, facts and the author's reflections in a format that is compelling. The changes in the nature of the narrative keep the material flowing smoothly.

Expert opinions are communicated succinctly with the words (and visual representations) of the experts in what seems to be a documentary format. Accepted scientific fact is supported by endnotes. The author's own reflections of his life and work, during the time of his creating the book, add both character and a sense of the author's state-of-mind in a way a reader seldom gets to experience with non-fiction. The reader can literally picture the author in the act of research and creation, with vignettes of his interactions and life events with his significant other Camille -- interspersed and intertwined with the science facts and opinions. The subtitle "A personal journey through the science" is very descriptive of the content. The author allows the reader to see the world as he sees it...and that is a gift of perspective.

The desire for truth and objectivity on the part of the author is apparent -- which leads to an unsatisfying, indefinite conclusion...but thoroughly appropriate given the nature of the content. The book offers an understanding of both the subject matter and the author, in a manner that is engaging and honest.

The book is well-referenced, with a full bibliography, index and background section on the experts quoted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for grasping climate change (maybe even if you're a scientist) 9 July 2014
By Judy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The graphic format of this book is key to making the facts and complexities of climate change accessible. The sources of the material are scientifically unimpeachable (see "Sources" in the back), and the author is an award-winning artist/graphic novelist in France. As the subtitle suggests Squarzoni intersperses his own story of searching to understand the science, and struggling with the implications. This personalized approach makes it a much more appealing and comprehensible read than if it only reported alarming numerical figures and descriptions of greenhouse gases, many of which were new to me. I hope this book reaches a wide market as it has the potential to motivate us to take serious, science-supported action----and to do so now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful portrayal of climate change 19 July 2014
By Sooki - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought this was a beautiful book. The graphic novel format was able to give the facts and descriptions a poignancy that printed fiction or nonfiction wouldn't have portrayed. The mechanics of global climate change were well described; the discussion of effects clear. The discussion of the impacts and necessary steps to minimize effects seemed realistic. The book ended with a discussion of the likelihood of meaningful change on a time scale that could make a difference. It is both a call to action and a poignant reminder of what we have to lose.

I thought for a graphic novel it was a real novel, an adult's book.. As a story it was one of a kind, contained a lot information on climate change. It shows obvious concern for future with the climate changing.
