Franke James’ Visual Review

Toronto artist/writer Franke James created this powerful “visual
review” of The Climate War. I’m delighted that my book has inspired
such a compelling piece. It’s my favorite review so far — please take
a look, I think you’ll be moved. For the full review, please visit James’ site here.
