"This enlightening book will make a hot day at the beach something to really think about." --Booklist

"Essential reading for those who care about humanity's future," --Ata Qureshi, Director, Global Environmental Programs, Climate Institute

A "field guide" to the greenhouse effect, Global Warming Unchecked focuses on the near-term changes in weather patterns we can watch for now as indicators of global warming. Bernard warns of the converging crises of climate and energy in the U.S. Unless the U.S. acts now to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels, it will not be able to forestall the looming climatic catastrophe. But does it have the courage and foresight to do so?
