    Glaciers: The Politics of Ice Kindle ä Glaciers: The glaciers free, politics kindle, Glaciers The free, Politics of ebok, The Politics of free, Glaciers The Politics of Ice PDFI just read a great book about glaciers There's so much I want to sort through in hereThe book is by Jorge Taillant who is a glacier activist in Argentina He was somewhat involved in the process of the passing of the first glacier protection law in the world Right now in Argentina it is mining that is the greatest threat to glaciers rather than global warming although warming is not far from anyone's mind when they talk about glaciers So I learned a lot about ice and glaciers rock glaciers active and inactive glaciers all kinds of glaciers and a lot about politics in Argentina both of which were interesting to me It turns out that we as hu

    Glaciers: The Politics of Ice Kindle ä Glaciers: The glaciers free, politics kindle, Glaciers The free, Politics of ebok, The Politics of free, Glaciers The Politics of Ice PDFThe book alternates between scientific information about glaciers and relating the story of how Argentina passed the world's first glacier protection law Actually it is mostly about the latter For the most part it's uite interesting reading though I found some of the details of Argentine politics a bit boring If you're concerned about water rights in the age of global warming I'd definitely recommend it

    Glaciers: The Politics of Ice Kindle ä Glaciers: The glaciers free, politics kindle, Glaciers The free, Politics of ebok, The Politics of free, Glaciers The Politics of Ice PDFI thought I was going to have to slog through this continuously forcing my brain to focus on the words and ideas Instead I felt like a smart cookie It had a relaxed writing style that made it very easy to follow along despite the fact this is a scientific topic steeped in foreign politics Science and political science were not my strong points in school so it was with some trepidation and yet some strong interest that I picked this up Taillant's style of writing makes this a pleasure to read It was not dry or a drag If anything it felt like a very earnest fellow sitting me down and talking to me about an important issue that everyone's brushing under the rug I am amazed at how much he knows about this and that knowledge definitely shows through in here I was amazed at how long some of this stuff has been in process Long before the climate change craze Taillant was working on the machinations behind the politics for environmental conservat

    Glaciers: The Politics of Ice Kindle ä Glaciers: The glaciers free, politics kindle, Glaciers The free, Politics of ebok, The Politics of free, Glaciers The Politics of Ice PDFThere are a lot of great nuggets in this book but it is so poorly written and so haphazardly structured that it's miserable to read The author spends far too much time on the local political gossip related to a glacier law in Argentina a shame because buried in all that trivia was a really interesting scientificlegal battle Every other chapter is focused on the science and geology of glaciers including a chapter called Amazing Glacier Stuff no joke that's really the title which is just as much of a grab bag as it sounds everything from a description of how atmospheric information is captured over time in visible glacier strata to an ov

    Glaciers: The Politics of Ice Kindle ä Glaciers: The glaciers free, politics kindle, Glaciers The free, Politics of ebok, The Politics of free, Glaciers The Politics of Ice PDFGlaciers are cool ok terrible puns aside they are a fascinating and vulnerable thing with a vital impact on our ecosystem on both a micro and macro scale This book is very clear and down to earth with its science and history I get the feeling it was written with adults and older children in mind and it works for both I think my favorite thing was the coordinates you were encouraged to plug into google earth allowing you to see specific glaciers way to blend technologies Overall I really enjoyed this book especially the approach to climate change and global warming Well researched and written From Netgalley for a review

    Glaciers: The Politics of Ice Kindle ä Glaciers: The glaciers free, politics kindle, Glaciers The free, Politics of ebok, The Politics of free, Glaciers The Politics of Ice PDFI had never really given glaciers a second thought Taillant however demonstrates that they are vitally important to all creatures who reuire fresh water to survive Glaciers which are rapidly disappearing due to human activity are the natural auifers of the planet The political drama is a little difficult for those of us unfamiliar with South American government but the takeaway is global I recommend this book Sects and Violence in the Ancient World

    Glaciers: The Politics of Ice Kindle ä Glaciers: The glaciers free, politics kindle, Glaciers The free, Politics of ebok, The Politics of free, Glaciers The Politics of Ice PDFGreat book about glaciers Towards the end it slowed down but overall I was really engaged with it Taillant tells the story of the legislative side a little too in depth sometimes but it was really interesting to see the struggle with the glacier law from a very close source The science was also interesting but I would have loved to have had a chapter about how people were saving glaciers so I could know what efforts to support
