"While Glaciers Slept weaves together the parallel stories of what happens when the climates of family and planet change. Jackson, a National Geographic Expert, reveals how these events are deeply similar and intertwined. She tells the story of her parents' struggles with cancer while describing in detail the planetary changes she's witnessed. Above all else, Jackson shows that even in the darkest of times there is clear reason for hope and light. Readers are drawn into a world where complex climatic themes and glacial processes are broken down for a general audience. Jackson dances us over solar, wind, and geothermal mysteries, bringing us along on expeditions. Climate change, she convinces us, is not just about science--it is also about the audacity of human courage and imagination. While Glaciers Slept shows us that the story of one family can be the story of one planet, and that climate change has a human face" --

Loved this book. Her perspective on grief/love/guilt/climate.change will breathe with me for some while to come.

There is no proof that increasing levels of CO2 cause either global warming or glacial melting while China and India do unnecessarily introduce huge amounts of unAmerican allowed industrial ash into the air that does likely promote some glacial melting. Still, even this real pollution is far less than that of variously constantly erupting volcanoes.
Meanwhile, Antarctic ice is at recent historical high amounts causing global historic increases. A relatively small amount of Antarctic glacial shelf ice is being melted by coastal underwater thermal vents - again, not by "CO2 global warming" (catastrophically mal-adjusted anthropogenic global warming (CM-AAGW)).
Please, keep it scientific and stop with the unsubstantiated CM-AAGW fraud terrorism.
Read this book with an authentic and demanding scientific skepticism – if you do read it. Couching phony “science” in an endearing, but irrelevant story does not justify phony “science”.
