Product Description

Review

'Condenses key findings from the scientists and is packed with facts, graphs and maps explaining how climate change is affecting the planet.' Guardian 'This pioneering atlas will become an essential point of reference for anyone looking for a quick and accurate overview of this multidisciplinary subject.' John Ashton, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) 'This is a remarkable piece of work and extremely readable. What is most heartening about this book is not only the wealth of information it conveys but the powerful illustrations and graphics.' R K Pachauri, Chairman, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 'The Atlas of Climate Change is a valuable resource to help understand the core issues at a time when the dismissive statements of a few sceptics are still given disproportionate credibility and media attention.' Gwyn Griffiths, Morning Star 'This latest volume in Earthscan's Atlas series offers a wide-ranging yet readable approach to this complex topic.' Spore
