Review: The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change by Yoram Bauman, Grady Klein



Title: The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change

Author: Yoram Bauman, Grady Klein

Genre: Nonfiction, Science, Graphic Novel

Climate change is no laughing matter – but maybe it should be. The topic is so critical that everyone, from students to policy-makers to voters, needs a quick and easy guide to the basics. The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change entertains as it educates, delivering a unique and enjoyable presentation of mind-blowing facts and critical concepts.

Rating: 4/5

I received this book on Netgalley in exchange for a review.

This book is very quick overview of climate change. In 200 pages, it covers the history of climate change, the current situation, the impacts of humans on climate, the possible solutions etc. The book talks about all the possible outcomes, the best ones and the worst ones, but my overall impression is that, even with all the bad things that could happen as a result of global warming, there are still reasons to be optimistic.

I’d recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about climate change, but is maybe intimidated by the subject. It’s a graphic novel, which makes it an even quicker read and it’s full of funny and interesting drawings that help you understand the issues.

The authors of this book also wrote The Cartoon Introduction to Economics, a book I’m very interested in reading now, and I hope it’s as fun and educational as this one.
