5.0 out of 5 stars A disturbing read, 4 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet (Paperback)
This book makes the reader really aware of the global warming issues in a non sensationalist but chilling manner.

Indeed as you get further into the book the horror of where we are and the (almost) inevitable consequences of doing nothing are rammed home.

Before reading this i thought that getting carbon emissions under control was all that was necessary - i now realise that we actually have to take steps to undo what has already happened.

Chapters 4 to 6 are terrifying but sadly seem based on events of many hundreds of millions of years ago - a little more linkage to current events would make it harder to deny the possibilities.

A very necessary book, but waht are world leaders both the politicians and the business leaders doing? Or is it all a case of we'll get by - it's the next generation's responsibility.

The book never mentions the cost of sorting out the problem but i get the impression it's not a few points on our tax but more a case of several tens of thousands of pounds for every man and woman in Europe and North America.
