Reviews for Cold Matters


Can you imagine a Canada without glaciers? It's a crazy and chilling thought, yet this seemingly unthinkable future is not only plausible but probable, according to dozens of leading scientists studying ice, snow, and water in Canada. Robert Sandford eloquently translates their complex research into an astonishing book about the effects climate change is already having and will have in the future unless we respond to this crisis with a degree of urgency sorely missing to date.óDavid R. Boyd, Adjunct Professor, Resource and Environmental Management, Simon Fraser University and author of The Environmental Rights Revolution: A Global Study of Constitutions, Human Rights, and the Environment


This is an incredibly important book. Robert Sandford translates complicated science to explain how climate affects snow and ice packs, which in turn threatens our precious water supplies and watersheds. I, for one, am deeply grateful for this book. I only hope those in power will hear its crucial message.óMaude Barlow, national chairperson of the Council of Canadians and author of the international bestseller Blue Covenant: The Global Water Crisis and The Coming Battle for the Right to Water
