"This book is a thoughtfully laid-out guide to help the reader grasp the immensity and intimacy of the energy and climate connection: a conversation starter and igniter. ... you will be invited to draw your own conclusions about the issues presented as you gain basic insight into the energy and climate relationship. ... As a specialist in energy education, I have read and digested countless energy and climate change articles, books, and classroom lessons. ... The Energy-Climate Continuum is refreshingly different." (Cynthia Howell, Reports of the National Center for Science Education, September-October, 2015)
