Book Review


The book begins with an introduction of the arctic ecosystem, and then focuses on the polar bears that have become the symbol of the geographic region. The narrative continues with the catastrophic effects of climate change and hypothesizes the downstream consequences. What may originate as the extinction of one species will disrupt the entire ecosystem, leading to disappearances of other animals and drastically altering landscapes for the worse. Though this process is already underway, there is still time for the reader to help prevent further damage through education, research and adjusting our lifestyles to save the environment.
