Publisher Comments:

Revisiting the most important topic of our time.

The rapid warming of the Earth's climate has been a concern for decades. Though many of us understand that temperatures will-on average-rise, the science and the resulting social, economic, and political implications of such a change are far-reaching and complex. This new edition has been completely overhauled, synthesizing the latest information into an easy-to-read reference that provides a fair assessment of climate change, its costs, and even its short-term benefits.

? Covers the newest science and issues surrounding global warming

? Written by a seasoned science/nature journalist

Book News Annotation:

This accessible guide for students and general readers overviews the science and history behind global warming, looks at the politics of energy conservation and pollution reduction, and empowers readers with suggestions and solutions. Simple b&w diagrams and illustrations are used to clarify complex concepts. Explanations are peppered with fact boxes, margin definitions, key point summaries, and original cartoons. A glossary and a list of organizations are included. Tennesen, a science writer, was a media fellow at the Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences at Duke University.
