Publisher's Summary

The climate of the Earth has changed throughout history. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth's orbit that changes the amount of solar energy. The trend toward current warming is particularly important because the bulk of this phenomenon (more than 95 percent probability) has undoubtedly been the result of human activity since the mid-20th century and is at an unprecedented rate over decades to thousands of years. 

Earth's climate reacts to greenhouse gas shifts in the region's ice core formed from Greenland, Antarctica, and tropical mountain glaciers. There is also ancient evidence in the forest, the ocean sediments, coral reefs, and sedimentary rock layers. The ancient climate or paleoclimate indicates that warming currently takes place about 10 times faster than the average warming in Ice Age.

In this audiobook, you will learn: 

  • What is climate change 
  • What are the causes of climate change 
  • What are greenhouse gases 
  • What is their contribution to climate change 
  • What is the role of climate change on natural disasters
  • What are the types of natural disasters 
  • What are hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunamis 
  • What is water scarcity and its reasons 
  • What is the impact of water scarcity on human life 
  • How to tackle water scarcity 
  • How to tackle climate change 

Climate change then results in a number of natural disasters occurring at a faster pace. Water scarcity is hitting our mother Earth and, therefore, threatening the survival of people all across the globe in years to come.

So, buy the audiobook now to learn more!

Boring

Narration is deadpan.

Content appears solid, but I find it impossible to listen to such boring narration.

NOT RECOMMENDED.

Do not waste your money

This book did not have a lot of new information. It sounded like it was assembled by supporters of the Green New Deal. Waste of money.

Extremely poor quality

Like another recent reviewer (I wish I had checked the reviews before buying), I, too, suspect that most of the reviews for this book are fake. While the information presented in the book seems to be mostly correct, it is very far from comprehensive (as implied by the subtitle "A Complete Guide...") and at times seems to be contradictory or incoherent, and in a few cases, is downright misleading.

The principal problem, which is likely responsible for most of the other problems, is that the English composition of the book is atrocious. I have been unable to learn anything about the author, whose online presence is limited to reviews of five books on trendy political topics (mostly racism) and are mostly short (comparable to this one, with a single exception); I am unable to determine the author's qualifications or level of expertise in this topic.

There seems to be quite limited forethought to the order in which the author presents ideas. The scattershot flow of ideas interferes with retention, but more importantly, sometimes causes passages to become misleading. Early in the book, in a discussion of general factors affecting climate, there is a discussion of the impacts of both the distance of the Earth from the sun and the angle of the Earth's axis relative to its orbit. Although the book correctly identifies the tilt of the axis as being primarily responsible for seasonal variation, this fact is sandwiched between multiple statements concerning the changing distance between the Earth and the sun (due to the elliptical orbit), which has a much smaller effect (and opposite effects on the Northern and Southern Hemispheres), and the awkward prose transitions could easily lead one to suppose that distance were the more significant factor (indeed, it is only through the benefit of the doubt that I do not suggest that the author is altogether mistaken about this point).

More significantly, the prose itself strongly suggests that the author does not speak English as a first language -- not, in and of itself, a problem, but more importantly, the author does not seem to be particularly fluent and seems to have a limited command of the idioms they are trying to use, which sometimes hinders comprehension. In many cases, with some of the language's more complex structures, the author seems to have ideas in the wrong order, so that the prose seems to say the opposite of what is likely intended. It is also highly unlikely that the author engaged any kind of editor, English or otherwise, and one wonders whether the author even bothered to proofread the book themself, given the large number of mistakes that anyone should have caught.

The narration is also disappointing. The narrator's voice is pleasant enough to listen to, and he gives an acceptable level of expression. He also has the virtue of speaking fluent English with an apparently native accent. However, it is clear that this narrator is effectively illiterate in the subject area addressed by this book. He clearly does not know (and does not take the time to find out) how to pronounce many of the subject-specific words in the book (and many of the words that he mispronounces are not particularly technical). His unfamiliarity with the subject also causes him to entirely misread some words (he mistakes "potable water" for "portable water"). Some of these mispronunciations are merely amusing (he pronounces "soot" as "suit", to rhyme with "boot", rather than to rhyme with "foot"); others are quite distracting, and a few interfere with understanding (as in the "potable/portable water" example already mentioned).

Overall, this book is, at best, dramatically unfinished. For a "complete guide", many key topics are only barely introduced. The poor organization and even poorer prose make the content difficult to understand and retain, and these problems are exacerbated by careless narration. If one of my university students handed me this paper, they would get a rather poor grade. I would say that the publisher should be ashamed to have released this book in this state, but I see that the book is self-published, which explains a lot. Save your money.

Don't Believe the Fake Reviews!

I am almost positive most of the reviews for this book are fake. (Take a few minutes and look at the other "reviews" by the "reviewers." They are all 5-star glowing generic endorsements.)

I have also been unable to find any info on the author. No bio or credentials at all. I should have looked before I purchased.

The book itself sounds like a mediocre college paper. Awkward sentence structure and grammatical inconsistencies abound. It jumps from topic to topic with seemingly no organization. To call this "A Complete Guide" is laughable.

Hope this helps you save your money on this one. Thank goodness I got it for only $3 wasted.
