Very descriptive. Felt like I was on the ice.

Amazed at our capacity to lounge, shop, and write product reviews as oceans rise, temps increase, crops fail, refugees wander - all while our economic systems continue to incentivize more growth. Growth that has altered our biosphere - our soil, our air, our rivers, lakes and oceans. Our home. Altered in ways that are harmful to human civilization as we know it b/c civilizations need air temperatures & sea levels to change slowly and/or not too much. Our biosphere turned hostile to mammals in the deep past and it can do so again relatively quickly.
Scientists like Henry Pollack deserve our respect and appreciation. Not just for their hard work, long hours, grueling travel schedule, being out in the elements, not seeing friends & family for weeks/months - but also because few scientists write books for non-scientists. And few are as well written as this.
Climate scientists, glaciologists and other Earth scientists are sounding the alarm, folks. What are you doing?
