Her sources are mostly magazine and newspaper articles, heavily annotated to hide their paucity.

She thinks we would be better off with a warmer climate since she thinks most people live in temperate zones and most food is grown there.

Good information about previous climate shifts if you ignore her politics.

Good read. It brought me up to date with the latest science on climate. Peters has a very easy-to-read writing style.

I just finished this book. Peters really does tell a much broader, deeper story of earth's climate and its long history (1.8million year!) of often very rapid climate change. She ends with the most surprising revelation (to me at least) of a major source of greenhouse and toxic gases that is never (that I am aware of) mentioned in the mainstream discussion.

She is a bit long on details early in the book but it is all worth it.

Reading this book changed my perspective regarding earths climate and climate change. I recommend it strongly.
