Reviews

"Generation Us is like a climate change CliffNotes...This is a short, succinct, clear and readable rendering of the science--followed by a passionate appeal for us all to move from "Generation Me" (which really seems to have outlasted its stylishness) to Generation Us, in which we start taking seriously the opportunity we have to mitigate the climate damage that we have already inflicted on future generations...For someone coming to this topic without any science background, GenUs is a perfect introduction--and as such is an important addition to the climate library."--DeSmogBlog.com
"Weaver clearly explains what global warming is, suggests reasons why we should care about the issue and offers some solutions to the problems that global warming creates...Provides teachers with a unique tool for introducing information circles and many opportunities to focus on the concept of transforming as a reading strategy. I would also recommend Generation Us as a resource for teachers looking for up to date information on the global warming issue."--Canadian Teacher Magazine
