People describe Melanie’s book, Life in the Hothouse: How a Living Planet Survives Climate Change, as a book for the general reader that demystifies the science behind climate change. Her book makes the comparison between humans producing sweat to cool off on a hot summer day to the planet producing hurricanes, floods, wetlands and forests to cool its self off. Makes sense to me. Her book is one full of hope provided we, as humans, help the Earth with those natural defense systems. With special guest Randy Olson – producer of the movie: Sizzle. The makings of a great, informative show!
