Here are some select endorsements for Comprehending the Climate Crisis:
"Dr. Dibble's book is an excellent overview of climate change. Covering basic chemistry and cosmology—and taking an historical approach that stretches back before the Industrial Revolution—he explains the science that's so necessary to truly grasping this issue. Readers will come to understand global warming's devastating effects but they won't leave with hopelessness. Dr. Dibble sets out practical solutions—like ending coal-fired power and ramping up solar and wind energy—that in relatively short order could bring great improvement."
—Gideon Forman, Executive Director, Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment
"I thrive on common sense and have difficulty with arguments that lack logic or are filled with empty rhetorical statements. That is the reason why I enjoyed Dr. Dibble's book. It presents to the reader a coherent and cogent description of a timely topic. We have been inundated with various viewpoints and one is easily confused with the bipolar quality of existing thoughts. Although comfortable with the science and the subject, I didn't feel that Dr. Dibble belittles the scientific reader yet he also keeps the novice well-paced with adequately detailed descriptions of the basic elements contributing to the problem. From the atom and its energy to the consumer's use and abuse of the available substances, we are led through a chronology with a worrisome ending. He paces us through simple pragmatic approaches to involve us in the solution. He invites the reader to take an active part in making a difference. We are warned that there are barriers and we are encouraged to face them. He succeeds in his motivation to deliver a brief but complete synopsis of a real crisis."
