-- Mother Jones, May 2005

"John Cox provides an engaging account of the adventures and excitement of the discovery of abrupt climate change, and he highlights the potentially serious implications that this discovery has for humanity."
-- Richard Alley, Evan Pugh Professor of Geosciences, Pennsylvania State University

"This engaging book is full of information that will be new to many, despite its grave importance. Even scientists have often swallowed the comfortable idea that things in the future will go much as in the past. That s unlikely, and Cox s book can help prepare us for the real future."
-- Spencer Weart, author of The Discovery of Global Warming

"John Cox guides us through the intricacies of the latest research behind controversies surrounding abrupt and long-term climate change. He provides a succinct analysis of cutting-edge climatological research into a fundamental issue for all of humanity."
-- Brian Fagan, author of The Long Summer

"John Cox elegantly chronicles the limits to our understanding of our chaotic and unpredictable climate. In the face of invisible thresholds, disproportionate reactions and stunning surprises, Climate Crash presents a compelling call for humility, respect and, above all, caution."
-- Ross Gelbspan, author of The Heat Is On and Boiling Point
