    "Climate change is a topic that has dominated discussions for the last several years. I've always been interested in it but didn't really know the science behind it. I found "Climate Change: The Facts" to be the perfect book to get me up to speed on Climate change. It was an easy read to break down all the facts and scientific knowledge to help me separate facts vs. opinions. "

    "I've been hearing in the news about the threat of global warming but it wasn't until I read A World Without Ice that I learned how drastic the situation really is. Reading this book opened my eyes to how a lot of my everyday actions have contributed to the deterioration of the atmosphere. I feel better equipped to curtail my negative impact and also to help inform others about how to act going forward. One step at a time we can help prevent the destruction of our planet."

    "Chasing Ice is an amazing film for people who are interested in global warming, nature, and our changing enviroment. The movie, filmed by James Balog, shows exactly how global warming is a real problem by filming the same spots for a year, creating a time lapse. This documentary looks boring from the cover, but I assure you it is anything but."

    "I have never doubted global warming and have always wondered how it could be substantially debated. Although, I had never visited the NASA Global Climate Change webpage until today. The substantial amount of evidence backed by sheer facts is overwhelming and almost terrifying. Global warming is real. Decades upon decades of data have been compiled up to this very minute. I have stumbled upon a wealth of information and will be back to adventure deeper into the resources to learn about global warming."

    " Another city-dwelling, high-resource-using Elite telling everyone how much poorer they shoudl be because there climate alarmism is a thing. You'll notice literary types gravitate toward Marxism and a chance to 'leave the capitalist world behind', while they consume massive resources in cities and wealth built by Capitalism. At this point only the low-intelligence will take these wishful thinkings seriously."
