    One thought on “What's the Worst That Could Happen?: A Rational Response to the Climate Change Debate”

    1. According to the author (from his introductory instructions) I should not have even bothered to read this book. According to him, his book is for people who think 1) global warming is bunk, or 2) the problem is way over-blown or not as important as a lot of other problems, or 3) haven't learned enough to form an opinion about it. Having read at least a dozen books on the subject of global warming and recognizing the very high probability of at least severe if not devastating consequences, I do n [...]

    2. This book is what we "green elitists" would term a game-changer (I can be cheesier if you would like). If you take the time to read this lesson, in book form, and listen to what Mr. Craven says, then your mind will be stronger for it. Directly the book is not about global warming, it just takes up over half the book. The book is basically a high school science lesson, amazing really considering the author IS a high school science teacher. Yes, at points Mr. Craven treats the reader like they don [...]

    3. Greetings, climate change skeptics and those undecided! This is not another book demanding your belief. Craven is good on his word that this book will help you sort the 'shouting match', not add to it. This is a truly awesome book, and you should read it for the following reasons: 1. It doesn't tell you who's right in the Climate Change debate. Surprise! :)2. It explains how science works (falsifying hypothesis), what's peer review, 'authority' in science and how the lack of 100% certainty helps [...]

    4. So far this reads like a 'RISK Management for Dummies' book - almost certainly what the author was aiming at. The emphasis is on Global Warming , or whatever the buzz phrase is this week , and the language is over-the-top non technical : the tone cringes from the thought that a reader might have more than a handful of brain cells ( scientists are geeks and eggheads ). Having said all that this is not another partisan offering from one side of the debate or the other. The author is trying to coac [...]

    5. Fantastic and easy read where you will learn something important about information overload and how to make an informed decision with the multitude of information available today. It's got humor & sarcasm along with cool pictures, how could you not enjoy it? Whether you are a warmer or a skeptic, this book is more about critical thinking and how to make a decision with all the mass amounts of conflicting information out there about global warming. Check it out. I don't think you'll be disapp [...]

    6. I want to buy this book for everyone I know. Read it, buy it, pass it on! Make it your next read, do it now.

    7. Review update: In my original review I downrated Craven's book because after five good chapters laying out tools and methods for rational decision making (how to think), Craven turned his book into a polemic on the specific topic of global warming (what to think). Ken Watanabe's Problem Solving 101: A Simple Book for Smart People is the book I thought I was reading in the first five chapters of Craven's book. After the debate with Craven and others stating his case in the comments below this rev [...]

    8. Is it prudent to sometimes take action based on incomplete evidence? In our daily lives we do it all the time. We buckle our seat belts even though a crash is unlikely, lock our doors to deter theft, use our senses to determine whether an apple is ripe before eating it, etc. Given that the best science can do is to provide better and better approximations to truth, is it prudent to take action to stave off global climate change?Greg Craven argues that this decision can be made based on the poten [...]

    9. I truly enjoyed this book. The perspective the book gave was enlightening. Helping me see how the general public views science, how my bias clouds my view, and ideas for how to prepare before entering a loaded topic. This book has made me more aware about myself and the world around me. I'm planning on applying the decision making guidelines to future complicated topics.

    10. Though he tends to repeat himself, Craven's arguments are concise, compelling, and, in my mind, irrefutable (spoiler alert: skip to the chapter on empirical evidence). You owe it to yourself and your children to own a copy of this. Even better: don't have kids!

    11. A good book about climate change that manages to move past the shouting matches. The focus here is on how to think about climate change, how to think about risk management and not what to think about it.

    12. 312965 Decent book that is really a guide to critical thinking about complex topics and making decisions based on your newly learned critical thinking skills.Craven did his research and the best parts were the summaries of the pro and anti warming (weirding) arguments.

    13. I liked the interesting and (kind of) unbiased approach to the topic. Also it was good at communicating the information to someone (like me) who did not know much about the topic. For me, it was boring at parts.

    14. Solid way to think about tough problems, where we must act on limited information. The book cover is wonky, but the content is great. This book will help you take the time to think critically about your views on global warming, whatever they are! (And yes, you should do that.)
