A readable account of the development of the science of global warming, alongside shocking vignettes that demonstrate the rapidly altering effects climate change is having on our world.

Abstract:  Growing from a three part series for the New Yorker, Kolbert's book offers readers an unbiased and sobering account of climate change. Drawing on interviews with researchers, environmentalists, trips to the Arctic to speak to people who are watching their worlds dissapear, she explains the science and studies of climate change and the rapidly altering affects it is having on the environment. Kolbert takes a hard look at the various plans to meet the problem: existing international responses, the Kyoto accord and the global warning debunkers in the U.S. administration. Field Notes brings the environment into our consciousness and asks what, if anything can be done, and how we can we save the planet.
