review 1: This book does a good job of touching on all the issues (ecological, political, scientific and social) involved in the subject of global warming. Various views and hypotheses are put forth in a concise but comprehensive manner. One thing is certain, though. If we do not change our way of consuming and manufacturing the world will be in dire straits. The more serious scenarios may not happen in my lifetime, but our current lifestyle choices will definitely effect the next generation.
review 2: A fairly thorough examination of then-current (the book was originally published in France in 2012) state of knowledge regarding climate change, as well as a look at what our options might be as far as a response goes. Squarzoni is an impressive artist, creating a fas
... morecinating and even cinematic book out of material that would be deadly dull in lesser hands. There's an interesting bit of foreshadowing in the section of the book dealing with nuclear power. Squarzoni mentions Three Mile Island and Chernobyl and speculates where the next disaster might occur: "When [nuclear plants] are also situated in areas where there are frequent earthquakes, the risks are even greater, as in Italy ... and Japan." I realized that this section must have been drawn and turned in to the publisher before the Fukushima disaster. All in all, this is an excellent book, though not, perhaps, a happy one. Much food for thought here. less

As in depth as a graphic novel can be on a serious topic. Not sure how much it will move the needle.
thoroughly depressing, thoroughly great.
