about

Monster wildfires in Australia, January golfers in PEI, ruined fruit crops in California, snowless ski runs in Switzerland, starving polar bears in the North, devastated trees in Stanley Park. Climate change is no longer a vague threat. The climate change we are in store for over the next few centuries will be larger and occur faster than at any time in the last 10,000 years. Brilliantly researched, Keeping Our Cool is a comprehensive and engaging examination and explanation of global warming, with a specific emphasis on climate change in Canada. In an engaging and accessible way,Weaver explains the levels of greenhouse gas emissions needed to stabilize the climate and offers solutions and a path toward a sustainable future.
ANDREW WEAVER is a professor and Canada Research Chair in climate modeling and analysis in the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of Victoria.

Editorial Reviews

"At last, a look at climate that is accessible, fascinating, and ultimately, a call for action ... A gripping narrative, this should be the final alarm that galvanizes us to move onto a different energy path of renewables and efficiency."
—David Suzuki, founder, The David Suzuki Foundation
