Format: Hardcover
LABORATORY EARTH simply and effectively describes the current status of research on the issue of climate change caused by human activities. The first part of the book summarizes the scientific basis for the conclusion that humans are currently raising the global temperature. The last part of the book discusses political and economic policy implications, as well as refuting arguments made within the last decade by scientists who have spearheaded the backlash against concerns about global warming. Schneider explains the scientific complexities of his specialty clearly. The book is part of the "Science Masters" series, which offers up-to-date understandings of various scientific disciplines by eminent scientists. LABORATORY EARTH will educate and enlighten without the tedium often found in more technical writing. This book should be on the reading list for the current debate about this planet's climate changes. END
