You might be wondering what the heck this book is doing on a Jewish website.  Good question!  Answer: The author, Assa Auerbach, is an Israeli Jew, physics professor at the Technion. And the illustrator, Rich Codor, is the author/illustrator of Richard Codor’s Joyous Haggadah. So it’s not so crazy as you might think. And besides, it’s an excellent book, a really good way to introduce physics and climate science to people who want to learn.
