"Tackling this thing will be the greatest adventure of our time," says Dr. Paul "Shep" Shepson with a grin. He is talking about global warming, which he sees not as a horrific, unavoidable disaster, but as a scientific and personal challenge. This book follows Peter Lourie and Dr. Shepson on three trips to the Arctic, where they investigate the effects of climate change on the local Iñupiaq people. They hear about hunters falling through the thinning ice, watch traditional dances, and go along on a whale hunt. Full-color photographs, glossary, list of recommended reading, and index.
