Summary

The news is full of hotly debated divergent claims about the impacts and risks of climate change. Lawrence Krauss, one of the world's most respected physicists and science populizers, cuts through the confusion by succinctly presenting the underlying science of climate change. The audiobook provides a unique, clear, accurate and easily accessible perspective of climate science and the risks of global inaction. The narrative, which movingly opens and closes on a Mekong Delta riverboat, lyrically explores the history of how scientists progressed to our current understanding of the Earth's climate and its future.

The Physics of Climate Change is required listening for anyone interested in understanding humanity's role in the future of our planet.

Fascinating and very factual

Unlike many other resources on this topic, it’s clear this book is based on a deep and well crafted research. I enjoyed wealth of data and mathematical evidence that reader can use in own models. Someone said this is the most important book everyone should read. Yes. I agree it’s worth listen or read this great work.

Everyone should read this.

Gives you a proper understanding of how climate change happen and how we know we as humans has a significant effect on it.

I wish all the figures he refers to, came as a downloadable PDF.. Even though he describes them.

average book very tendencious

This book is very biased thowards the confirmation of what we already expect to hear about climate change.
models are not as accurate and complete as Krauss tries to defend.
