The Global Warming Reader August 4, 2011 : 4:54 PM

My good friend, Bill McKibben, has edited a fantastic book of texts, excerpts, speeches, testimony, and writings from a wide-variety of voices on the climate crisis. The book begins with Nobel Prizewinner Svante Arrhenius' writing from 1896 about the rule of fossil fuels in temperature rise and includes pieces from my mentor Roger Revelle, Jim Hansen, President of the Maldives Mohamed Nasheed, and the wonderful writer Betsy Kolbert.

As Bill writes in his introduction, "We need to feel what's happening, not just in our overheating bodies but in our minds and spirits too."
