Here's a little book, both funny and sobering (certainly entertaining), that tackles the big issues of global warming and climate change. Zeno Hintermeier is a scientist, a glaciologist, working as a tour guide aboard a vessel headed for Antarctica. The book chronicles his attempts to get the wealthy tourists to marvel at the landscape and see the world as he does. He "bemoans" the loss of his beloved glaciers and desperately wants others to understand what is happening to this world. Zeno is not the most likeable fellow, he's a bit angry and whiny, but, oh, when he talks about the icy world he loves....he clearly is a romantic, and is almost impossible not to like. ( )
