Summary
"Global Warming aims to make accessible the heavily technical literature to the non-science student, providing a bridge between the highly scientific and the popular non-academic texts. Placing global warming within the broader context of climate change, this textbook details the interacting components of the climatic system, reviewing the importance of changing carbon dioxide levels for the evolution of the Earth's atmosphere and climate. Utilizing observed and modelled data, it presents the latest evidence for and against global warming, highlighting the difficulties involved with analysing both types of data and introducing areas of controversy within the research. The book also addresses the important problem of making policy decisions for the future, based on the uncertain science of global warming."--Jacket
