Sandy Hokanson

This book is easy to read and understand. The author clearly describes global warming, what causes it, what its current effects are, and what could happen in the future if the problem is ignored. And, unlike many "catastrophe" books, this one spells out plausible and affordable solutions that would benefit the entire world. If only George W. Bush and his oil company buddies would read this and act on it. They'd salvage their reputations and become real heroes.
