Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Based on the analysis of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), but seen through the perspective of everyman journalist Philippe Squarzoni, this graphic novel explains how our environment functions; outlines the consequences of climate change and asks: is our society able to pursue a proactive policy in regard to ecological issues? In a tour de force of both artistic and informational presentation, with the impact of climate change on the US central to the narrative, Philippe Squarzoni weaves together scientific research, interviews with leading experts, personal reflections and a call for action starting at a grassroots level. One of the featured experts is Jean Jouzel, member of the IPCC (recipient with Al Gore of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize), who praised the final book on its thorough research and understanding of the facts.
