Description

A World Without Ice, a book by Henry Pollack who was a winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his work on climate change (alongside Al Gore—who, incidentally, also wrote the foreword for the book). A World Without Ice is the first of its kind that tackles the idea of climate change from the ice standpoint how we got to the melting of the ice caps, what it means, ramifications and what we can do about it. The topic is fascinating and the evidence of a meltdown stunning.

Ice has been around for billions of years but it has taken less than three centuries for human growth and industry to bring it to the point of extinction. Without taking significant measures, agriculture and drinking water are at risk, as are millions who live on the coast and are in danger of becoming climate refugees.

And as Henry says Natures best thermometer, perhaps its most sensitive and unambiguous indicator of climate change, is ice. When ice gets sufficiently warm, it melts. Ice asks no questions, presents no arguments, reads no newspapers, and listens to no debates. It is not burdened by ideology and carries no political agendas. It just melts.

A World Without Ice has the grit to bring this subject to the forefront of American conversation. It is an honest look at what would happen if we continue on the present path and have to cope in a world sans ice.

Henry Pollack has been a professor of geophysics at the University of Michigan for more than forty years, and is one of the worlds leading experts on the temperature of the Earth. He shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with fellow members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former vice president Al Gore. He currently serves as a science advisor to Al Gores Climate Project training programs in the U.S. and ahttps://www.mturk.com/mturk/submitbroad. He lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
