2.0 out of 5 stars Dated? 8 Jan 2004
By brendon westacott - Published on Amazon.com
I read this aware that it was well over 10 years old, and alot has changed in climatology and the general environmental debate in that time. Nevertheless, it holds many concurrent arguments, and some which have (temporarily?) become unfashionable. It perhaps overstretches itself, in that it covers such a wide area of climate change debates, from desertification, ozone depletion, to historic global variability (ice ages etc)that it ultimately lost its thread and became an amalgam of all connected debates. Fast paced and written with humour, it is however still very readable, and may one day be looked upon as bold, even prescient in its Gaiian or holistic view of our planet.
