4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Theory, well written, 7 Oct. 2010
Plows, Plagues and Petroleum is an interesting and different look at anthropogenic climate change. The authors points are well argued, it makes quite an easy read whilst still retaining enough depth to cover the relevant details.

4.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable read for students, 5 Sept. 2012
As a geography student Plows, Plagues and Petroleum was on my reading list and I would definitely recommend buying a copy. I used it countless times in both the human and physical geography components of my course as a key text for contextualising 21st century cliamtic change within the context of previous anthropogenic intervention in the climate system. I wouldn't consider myself to be and physical geographer but Ruddiman's work is so accessible and highly relevant that I found it an interesting and involving read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be required reading, 21 Nov. 2009

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Plows, Plagues, and Petroleum: How Humans Took Control of Climate (Paperback)
This is a book that should be read by all proponents of Global Warming/Climate Change. Wm. Ruddiman is a Climatologist, his book is not biased for or against the issue and presents a factual view of the situation past and present. He is a scientist, not a politician, or paid and reliant on funding to hold their positions. The current situation represents one of the biggest scams laid at the door of the general public, with many unqualified people (A. Gore being a prime example) pushing a point of view which is not proven. Consider the effects of the current policy in the UK of cutting CO2 emissions by 80% by 2050.
