    i enjoyed this book for its description of what it's like to do research in the Arctic. Bring pencils, not pens, because ink freezes! I love reading about the early exploration of the Arctic, and wish there had been more on that. The author talks about how global warming may be shrinking the ice cap, and how some day it may all be open water up there.Countries are already thinking ahead about drilling for oil reserves, and are arguing about who owns what underwater mountains and ridges. The vult [...]

    Andrew C. Revkin, The North Pole Was Here: Puzzles and Perils at the Top of the World (Houghton Mifflin, 2006)Given the title of this book and a bubbly blurb from eco-wingnut Bill McKibben, I was expecting the usual knee-jerk no-brain “OMG THE WORLD IS BURNING UP” nonsense. To say that what I got was a pleasant surprise would be an understatement in the extreme. New York Times columnist Revkin, who has been writing about environmental issues (with, given the article snippets presented in thi [...]

    In a place where “the sun never sets” and “the air is twenty degrees below zero,” New York Times reporter Andrew Revkin accompanies a team of scientists to perhaps the most famous location which is never in the same spot twice, the North Pole. Revkin combines his own arctic experiences with the historical adventures of some of the world’s most daring explorers who competed to find the point “where all is south.” Scientific research at the pole is discussed, including an introductio [...]

    More than any other writer, Revkin has followed and told the story of the vanishing polar ice cap and what it means to the broader global-warming story. The book is written for younger readers because Revkin feels his (our) generation has already lost its chance to make truly effective climate mitigation.

    I love to read anything about the poles! They just fascinate me; I mean who doesn’t fantasize about the ends of the Earth? This book covers both the legends and lore of the northern most point as well as the science of the cold and white place. A good read for both the young and old.

    I never looked at the North Pole the way this book did. I thought that the book had great information in it and would be very useful in a classroom for a lesson or unit on the North Pole.
