Stormy Weather: 101 Solutions to Global Climate Change


Stormy Weather"Guy Dauncey and Patrick Mazza's book is THE best I have ever seen in non-fiction. I'm still amazed that I don't get overwhelmed by the amount of information but it's so user-friendly that I just can't. It's a great honour to have it on my bookshelf. Every time I go by it I think about the time and effort it took to create a masterpiece like that one."

"It's quite a lovely book, in every way, from the big idea(s) down to the small, the particulars of the 101 solutions, the writing, the positive but pointed tone, how numbers are handled, the conceptualization of the various levels of action (individual-family, community, city, etc.), the graphic-friendliness, etc. You've done something wonderful, I think."
