5.0 out of 5 stars Unrivalled pictures of an abstract threat 19 May 2013
By Juraj Kubica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
People with the understanding of climate change have often problem how to transfer this knowledge to a layperson. With this picture-book, you have a great companion, as the photographer came a far way to picture such an abstract issue as climate change. And not just that. The author of the text, Mr. Schmidt, is the foremost climate scientist with a gift to explain complex issues in plain language. In this book, you can not just read or see the issue, but you can feel it and think about the consequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Art of Science 6 Sept. 2010
By J. D. Fraine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a wonderful combination of the imagery and science. At one level, it could be a fascinating book about the wonders of scientific research, while at another it could be a collection of wonderful photography from scientists around the world. Seamlessly combining these two fronts, while elucidating the truth about climate change in a very real and striking way, "Climate Change: Picturing the Science" allows its readers to literally see what is happening to our world and those who are searching for a cure.
3.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully done. This book brings it all together for me. 12 Oct. 2013

It helps to see it in pictures sometimes. I do a lot of reading on this subject and truly, a pic is with a 1000 words.
I feel like this book helped me solidify what I've read in Climate & Consetvation (Hilty,Chester& Cross) and other books & websites.
