    "As an avid weather geek this is not a good resource if you're wanting to learn more about climate change. While the movie is okay it doesn't really explain the true reasons as to why climate change is playing a role in chaining our world. If you want a good movie then watch this, if you want better information on climate change then look else where."

    "I found this particular offered an interesting and useful take on the issue of climate change, in terms of changing the typical narrative on the subject from the future of the planet to the future of man. However, although factual and helpful, I do not find this 2.52 minute video overview of the subject to represent a significant or substantive resource for learning about climate change."

    "This is a substantive solution selection for the topic of climate change. The author of the work in question is very well credentialed, and has significant employment, teaching and research experience with the subject matter. The book itself is well organized, factual and detailed. Overall Amazon reader reviews of this particular work are well above average to excellent. The only real drawback of the work in question is that it is somewhat dated, and was published in 2010."

    "As a book reader who loves to read books about real world situations. I can tell you that this is not the book you want to read about climate change. This book is on a person's take on climate change and is of their own opinion. It takes what scientist know and completely flips it upside down to try to say that humans are not the caused for climate change. This book completely contradicts what the science community has been saying for years. Not a good book and not a good read if you're willing to know more about climate change."
