Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book. It is quite technical but the author genuinely strives to make complex information accessible to the enthusiastic layperson/ student. It is comprehensively illustrated with plenty of colour charts/ graphs etc.
Reading this book made me realize that the "climate debate" is over - mankind is definitely adversely influencing the
climate. Why are we so reluctant to acknowledge what 95% of earth scientists are telling us? This book gives a
wonderful insight into how these scientists have reached their conclusions and the science/ computer modelling
underlying these conclusions.
A must read for anyone interested in the subject; even if it is pitched at undergraduate level.

Excellent comprehensive text on climate change 23 April 2013
By Ron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book provides a great overview of recent climate change, the impact of humans on the climate system, and the impacts the changes in climate (including likely future change) have on humans and other life on Earth. The current thinking in the field of climate change is reflected throughout the text, and each chapter covers the important topics at hand. The diagrams on sea-level rise are particularly interesting and extremely helpful in understanding the material. Overall, it provides great insight into an important issue that is (and should be) at the forefront of every scientist's mind today.

Great Introduction to a Complicated Topic 23 April 2013
By Ryan A. Flahive - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
With all of the hype and misinformation spread by interest groups on both sides of the climate change argument, it is helpful to have a book that explains the basic science. Fletcher does a great job of helping readers understand how to think about climate change rather than telling us what to think.

Just the Facts 9 July 2014
By Rahasya Poe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Climate Change: What the Science Tells Us
By Charles Fletcher
ISBN: 978-1-11805-753-7 (John Wiley & Sons, 2013)

If you want to get the facts straight about whether climate change is man-made or natural, this book will clear that question up for you. Even though climate change has been happening on this planet for millennia, the climate change that's happening today is completely out of the ordinary. It seems to me that with all of the conflict between political agendas, corporate media, and bought-off politicians and scientists, that a book such as this should be read by everyone who lives on this planet. This book is written as a textbook so it's laid out in an easy-to-understand format with many references to back up conclusions that the author makes. It has excellent graphics and easy-to-understand graphs for those of us who have a difficult time with purely textual information.

The finest text book on climate change, bar none 20 Nov 2014
By R. Eddy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very important book, and so accessible. With so much political and international debate around climate change, it is critical we listen to what the science is actually telling us. Fletcher does just that. On a question so laden with bias, Fletcher lets the science do the talking.
That alone would be enough to make this a notable text book, but the quality of the narrative sets this apart. The clear organization, tight prose and wonderful illustrations (some of the best I have ever seen) make this the go-to text book on climate change.
Well done!
