    This New York Times bestseller in paperback edition is a bran-new book and nicely wrapped with protective book-wrapper. The original new book is sold at usual price RM91.53. Now here Only at RM25. This is a book for all of us: students, activists, Earthlings. ● Van Jones, ● Al Gore, ● Elizabeth Kolbert, ● Naomi Klein, and other essential voices on global warming, from its 19th-century discovery to the present, in a volume edited by Bill McKibben, our most widely respected environmental writer With the rise of extreme weather events worldwide--witness the devastation wrought by Hurricanes Sandy, Irene, and Katrina, and the sustained drought across the American West--global warming has become increasingly difficult to deny. ☞ What is happening to our planet? ☞ And what can we do about it? The Global Warming Reader provides more than thirty-five answers to these burning questions, from more than one hundred years of engagement with the topic. Edited by perhaps the most widely-respected writer on the environment today, GWR is a comprehensive resource that collects seminal texts and voices on climate change from the phenomenon’s discovery in the late 19th century to the present. Here is Elizabeth Kolbert's groundbreaking essay "The Darkening Sea," Michael Crichton's skeptical view of climate change, George Monbiot's biting indictment of those who are really using up the planet's resources, NASA scientist James Hansen's testimony before the U.S. Congress, and clarion calls for action by Al Gore, Arundhati Roy, Naomi Klein, Van Jones, and many others. The Global Warming Reader is a comprehensive resource, expertly edited by someone who lives and breathes this defining issue of our time. This collection, which includes criticism of the very concept of global warming (by doubters U.S. Sen. James Inhofe and Michael Crichton), attempts to answer these all-important questions. It provides both an informative view into the history of the science behind global warming and a broad collection of responses to this reality, which makes this book both extremely gripping and very useful as a reference. Divided into three part: ➽ Science, ➽ Politics, ➽and Meaning The book contains a transcript of NASA scientist James Hansen's testimony before the U.S. Congress; George Monbiot's biting, convincing indictment of who is really using up the planet's resources; Elizabeth Kolbert's groundbreaking essay “The Darkening Sea,” and excerpts from the work of Al Gore, Naomi Klein, and many others. Even in this age of electronic archives, GWR is essential, as much for Bill McKibben's selection and introductions as it is for its broad spectrum of content. Including original introductory paragraphs to each selection by the editor. The book should be of interest to those who want to understand more on global warming in all its different aspects. It should also serve to broaden ones experience on what has been written on global warming. For the science skeptic it would probably all seem absurd, except those pieces written from their perspective. About the Author Bill McKibben is the author of The End of Nature, and The Age of Missing Information. He is a frequent contributor to such publications as Outside, The New York Times, and The New York Review of Books, and a former staff writer at the New Yorker.
