Storms of My Grandchildren, by James Hansen is two books in one: It is a detailed explanation of the latest scientific research on global warming. It is also a memoir of a leading climate scientist’s attempts to bring this research to the attention of national policy-makers and convince them of the need to act decisively. Highly recommended to anyone concerned about our global future.
