Reviews

"All the books in the series share an epigram invoking former Vice President Al Gore's controversial polemics on global warming. This volume describes Gore's documentary An Inconvenient Truth, which widely publicized the imperative of climate change. In also publishing President Obama's remarks on extreme weather, this book becomes perhaps the most politically charged in the series. Each chapter ends with endnote citations, and the list of resources for further study is considerable. There is an index. Recommended for school libraries."--Reference Unbound, January, 2011
