Review:

"In an unorthodox blend of history, science and ecopolitics, Christianson...makes a cogent case that global warming is real....A historian of science at Indiana State University, Christianson calls his gracefully written book the biography of a scientific idea....[E]ngaging text." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A levelheaded, multileveled historical excursion, providing an advantage in understanding the controversial global-warming threat." Booklist

Book News Annotation:

132379In roughly chronological linked stories, Christianson (history, Indiana State U.) traces the theories, observations, and assumptions that have led to the modern sciences studying the atmosphere. He begins in the early 1800s when Fourier discovered that the air absorbs the Sun's warmth and re-radiates it to the Earth's surface. He shows how science and history intertwine, profiling many players not usually connected with science or global warming.
