Summary
"This fully illustrated reference for nonscientists and scientists alike is an updated and expanded revision of Robert Henson's The Rough Guide to Climate Change, previously published in the UK. It provides the most comprehensive, yet accessible, overview of where climate science stands today, acknowledging controversies but standing strong in its stance that the climate is changing - and something needs to be done."--Cover
