Reviews
...Heat Advisory is a welcome volume that is well suited for its target audience, with its main strengths being that of communicating climate science in a clear manner to a non-academic readership.--Environmental Values--

In Heat Advisory, Lockwood outlines a model for addressing global warming and its health impacts that's analogous to disease prevention in medicine.
