"The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change"

      Climate change is no laughing matter - but maybe it should be. The topic is so critical that everyone, from students to policy makers to voters, needs a quick and easy guide to the basics. The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change entertains as it educates, delivering a unique and enjoyable presentation of mind-blowing facts and critical concepts. "Stand-up economist" Yoram Bauman, with award-winning illustrator Grady Klein, created the funniest overview of climate science, predictions, and policy that you'll ever read. You'll giggle, but you'll also learn - about everything from Milankovitch cycles to carbon taxes.

      You can meet Yoram at his book event and signing at 7:30 tonight at Powell's Books located at 3723 SE Hawthorne Blvd in Portland.
