From the Publisher:
A leading scientist on climate issues offers his views on the growing threat of human-caused climate change and looks at why the proposed solutions are not sufficient to stop a global meltdown.
As the head of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies since 1981, Dr. James Hansen has had a front-row seat from which to observe the endless diversions and digressions employed by Congress to avoid making laws and industrial regulations to combat the advance of global warming. Now that Hansen is a grandfather as well as a scientist, he has felt compelled to take his struggle to the public with his first book, an accessible and distressing analysis of climate change and global warming which indicates that the planet is heading towards certain environmental catastrophe within the century. Hansen condemns world governments and corporate lobbyists for obfuscating facts in regards to global warming and for openly obstructing the measures needed to eliminate the use of fossil fuels and drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions. After presenting copious amounts of convincing data to support his claim that global warming is much worse than has been reported, Hansen outlines specific solutions which must be enacted as soon as possible if we hope to protect future generations from the wrath of a wounded and combative Mother Nature.
Customer Reviews of Storms of My Grandchildren
HARD BUT IMPORTANT READ11/1/2010
This is a book in which content overrules all other considerations. James Hansen will never win any writing prizes. But if you have the patience to wade through his evolving personal conflicts, you will come to a chilling understanding of the global warming issue, about which none of the nay-sayers and even most of the supporters haven't a clue. I have not found or seen this information anywhere else. That's why this book should be on your "Must Read" list.
