Global Warming: Causes, Effects, and the Future

by

Global Warming: Causes, Effects, and the Future Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


Planet Earth is warming faster now than at any other time in the past 1,000 years, and global warming may be the greatest threat to ever face humanity. Counteracting it is our greatest challenge.  

Mark Maslin explains what global warming is and presents incontrovertible evidence that it is really happening. He examines the impact that climate change will have on health, agriculture, water resources, coastal regions, forests, and wildlife. He also looks at the efforts being made to counteract the effects of global warming and the ways in which we can adapt.

Book News Annotation:

Like most scientists and Al Gore, Maslin (Environmental Change Research Centre, U. College, London) is convinced that unprecedented rising global temperatures are due to human activity. In this colorfully illustrated introduction, the author of Global Warming: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford U. Press, 2004) summarizes evidence for human impact on climate change and its effects on resources and health in historical context. He is guardedly optimistic about efforts to deal with this threat.
