    After decades of working for such esteemed organizations as the UN Global Climate Observing System in Geneva, climate scientist Goodrich celebrated his retirement by cycling 4,200 miles from Delaware to Oregon on a mission to spread the word about the looming perils of global warming. Combining personal reflections with sobering environmental facts and figures he takes along with him, he exposes a pervasive streak of climate change denial in the U.S. and shares the best antidotes for politically motivated misinformation. With his wife connecting with him at key points, he follows a relatively straight line through landmarks like Annapolis and the Badlands to his final destination, Waldport, Oregon, on the Pacific Ocean. Along the way, he braves torrential rains in Maryland, exhausting heat in Kansas, and a tornado near-miss in Missouri and makes pit stops in laboratories, truck stops, and grade schools to discuss climate science. Entertaining and instructive, Goodrich's travelogue showcases one man's heroic efforts to confront this century's greatest environmental crisis. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
