Climate Change - Past, Present, and Future: a Very Short Guide

Price: $15.00

Climate change will likely be the major environmental – and perhaps economic and social – issue of the twenty-first century. It is controversial, confusing, and hugely important. Intended for students, teachers, and general readers, this book is a concise, user-friendly handbook that addresses the major features of the science behind this very complex topic. The authors explain – clearly and with a minimum of jargon – the basis for the three central conclusions of modern climate science: that the Earth is warming, that humans are mainly responsible, and that these changes will be extremely challenging for humans to deal with.
