'This interesting book should have this sub title: Everything you wanted to know about Climate Change but were afraid to ask.
It covers the subject from every possible angle from the climate in the past and how it effected historical views, to the modern era where it focuses on the complex process that are and may have been the causes of climate change. It explains how these processes, once studied, can be used to make models of the complex systems giving useful predictions, which can be used to aid future environmental decisions. Despite being only 139 pages long the book covers a difficult and complex subject well with a stimulating and informative style accessible to the non-specialist.'
‘(…) In summary, this book is recommended for someone who wants an overview of the key points of the climate change issue and some broad perspectives on climate. The reader should be aware that some scientific aptitude would be helpful to understand some of the scientific details.’
