Summary
"As the icecaps melt and the sea levels rise around the globe--threatening human existence as we know it--climate change has become one of the most urgent and controversial issues of our time. For most people, however, trying to understand the science, politics, and arguments on either side can be dizzying, leading to frustrating and unproductive debates. Now, in this groundbreaking new work, two of our most renowned thinkers present the realities of global warming in the most human of terms--everyday conversation--showing us how to convince even the most stubborn of skeptics as to why we need to act now. Indeed, through compelling Socratic dialogues, Philip Kitcher and Evelyn Fox Keller tackle some of the thorniest questions facing mankind today"--
Summary
Two forefront intellectuals examine the science, politics and debates surrounding climate change in today's world, addressing topics ranging from whether or not climate change is real to the responsibility of today's world in protecting future needs
