Praise

…the book gives a refreshingly clear picture of the science of studying climate change and of the curious, dedicated scientists in action.—Publishers Weekly

This book teaches us a lot about how to do science and how to investigate difficult problems about the causes of environmental change. It shows that abrupt climate changes really have happened and puts forward likely mechanisms. It tells us a great deal about the wonders of Greenland and how important the country is as a window on to the recent glaciations. And it makes the whole idea of sudden, grave climate shocks arising from greenhouse emissions seem terribly plausible, even if it does not predict any particular shocks. It is not a story about lands’ end, but it is a very fine tribute to [Gary] Comer.

Times Higher Education

Scientists and non-scientists from all walks of life will find this an eloquent and timely read.

Rick Docksai, The Futurist

[A] gripping rationale for their simple plea—’Pay attention to Greenland.’

Bud Ward, The Yale Forum
