    1. As the planet gets hotter, we’ll live sicker and die quicker.All change is a matter of degrees. Up or down, a bit here, a bit there. And in time, with persistence, you really have something. In the Broadway and later film musical,Pajama Game , the cast sings of the accumulating impact of a small change, in this case literal small change. And so it is with global warming. A fraction of a degree here and there, and what with adding that small bit over and over, the overall amount grows significa [...]


    2. There are growing number of books being released about climate change and this one addresses its impacts on individual health and the public systems designed to address those impacts.Guess what? They're insufficient. Author Linda Marsa has travelled far and wide in gathering information from places where climate change is already wreaking death and destruction, spurring desperate attempts at adaptation.In line with recent reports (2013-14) suggesting the impacts of climate change may confront al [...]


    3. For those who want to know some of the impacts of global warming, this is a good book. Like many books of this genre it is more a warning and we need to stop everything now book - so not terribly realistic. That said, it does a good job of exploring the various impacts that we will see in our lifetime as well as in centuries to come and it did a great job of painting that picture. So I found other books to fill in the adaptation and realistic response gaps that were not provided for in this book [...]


    4. Well written and referenced but sort of breathless. It really didn't cover health issues in depth as much as general issues from climate change. I didn't feel like I learned anything new here although I didn't realize dengue fever was so widespread in the southern US. In general this book does show the costs associated with changes caused by climate change and how we can be poorly prepared for dealing with the resultant public health issues.


    5. Packed with a huge amount of research and site visits, it's a bracing look at an overheating world. The prose is a touch overheated too - it makes for an adventure story very often, but the danger and the agony are overhyped in journalistic fashion. I learned a lot though - and enjoyed the appreciation of a green New York at the close.


    6. The author attempts to lay out the consequences of climate change & its profound impact on out health. Interesting read.


    7. Truthfully I could not finish it. I just could not get into reading and I was looking forward to reading it.
