final blog

After reading this book I have either been interested or confused. However, I actually liked the end of this book because I feel like because i've been to Burlington before and know how clean and environmentally safe they are, it was a lot easier for me to read this chapter. It kept me interested and reading. I also enjoyed how it seems like the end of the book was like a "how to help with global warming," thing. The whole book until these chapter was about global warming and how its effecting or planet, and then the last couple were ways to make the environment safe and better. I don't know if this was intentional, probably, but I liked that.
The descriptions of Burlington made me laugh because it is so weird to read a book from a critically acclaimed author, on a town that I have known so much about for so long. I enjoyed this a lot more than all of the other chapters because I think it has the "hits home" factor, which personally I think is great. It wasn't all about science, it was interesting.
All together this book is probably something I would never pick up to read for fun, but it definitely gave me a different perspective on the world and how we should start thinking about how we do things. At times I did get frustrated with the reading because it would get confusing, but then again you have to look at it as a whole. The main theme is global warming, what can we do to fix this problem.
Knowledge of the facts will help those that don't know what is going on, and I think this is a great book that will help those people figure it out.
