Book Review: Polar Obsession
Polar Obsession is a photo story of the wildlife of the Arctic and Antarctic, and the story of how their lives may change if global temperatures continue to rise. This book is definitely an attempt to grab attention through the plight of the well-loved polar bears and penguins, along with some less known animals like the narwhals and elephant seals. This book has very little writing... most of what there is is simply a narrative of the photographer's story, as well as the repeated theme that if global warming doesn't stop, these polar creatures are all in doom.
This book isn't really about the science-- it is about the absolutely amazing photographs. The beautiful scenery, the glaciers, the up-close with the wildlife, and the story behind it all. In all honesty, I am not sure how many minds will be swayed in regards to global warming policy, but this book is well worth checking out for the amazing photography. Pin It Now!
