Elizabeth Kolbert (5/8/2006)


New Yorker climate journalist Elizabeth Kolbert offers her take on whether increasingly fierce huricanes, changing animal migration patterns, and disapperaing glaciers signal that we're headed for global melt down.
The former New York Times reporter has made it her mission to educate the public about the very real threat of Earth's rising temperature, and what can be done, if anything, to save the planet and bring the thermometer back down a notch or two.

Her new book is titled "Field Notes From a Catastrophe"
