Senator Rob Hogg's new book on climate change, America’s Climate Century, is now available. It is short (120 pages) and affordable ($10.95).  It is a fresh, concise, readable book about climate science, the real life consequences of climate change, doable solutions for sustainability, and how Americans can think about the issue and take action based on our values, our history, and our culture – to finally take the national climate action we so urgently need for our future.
