" Two Degrees seem such a minor change.

Michael E. Mann | Author of The Hockey Stick And The Climate Wars:
“Overheated provides a lucid vision of the catastrophic consequences we will face if we fail to transition away from a fossil fuel-based economy. What gives the book power is the perspective it provides, of a legal scholar who initially viewed climate change as an interesting topic for academic research, to a passionate advocate for tackling the greatest threat human civilization has yet faced. If you care about the future of our planet, read this book.”

“Andrew Guzman offers a concise and useful over view of the kind of problems a heating world will encounter—indeed, already is encountering. There’s nothing alarmist here—just straight forwardly realistic, and hence all the scarier.”
