4.0 out of 5 stars SIr John Houghton shows what it takes to be a successful, responsible scientist, 11 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In the Eye of the Storm: The Autobiography Of Sir John Houghton (Paperback)
I found this to be an outstanding read for any scientist and especially a physicist, as Professor Sir John Houghton, FRS is an exceptionally eminent worker in the field of atmospheric physics and meteorology. Not only does he describe in detail important work in his area but also he gives an up-to-date in-depth outline of the phenomenon of climate change, emphasising that we are already at the eleventh hour and need to quickly come to international agreement on what should be done about it; but also he shows what it is to be a developing scientist intent on a successful career, indicating what a responsible scientist should do to better life on this planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming tale of a nice man., 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In the Eye of the Storm: The Autobiography Of Sir John Houghton (Paperback)
This is an easy read. John Houghton comes over as a very modest and nice man. The story is more about his career and pursuit of science truth than about his personal life.
I am always amazed by people who can stay calm and reasoned when attacked by those with vested interests. The importance of presenting the science in a non emotional way comes through very strongly.
I am currently working through the web links included in the notes. This reflects one of the underlying themes. When you attribute something to a source, supply the source reference, then readers can track it back.
Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Revies of "In the Eye of the Storm" by Sir John Houghton, 10 Jan 2014

This review is from: In the Eye of the Storm: The Autobiography Of Sir John Houghton (Paperback)
This is a fascinating read about a unique figure in British science. John Houghton has been a leading international light in the effort to convince governments about the importance of limiting CO2 emissions in order to protect the Earth and humanity from the ravages of climate change. In the context, particularly, of the USA, his Christian perspective is one which stands at least some
chance of persuading the uncommitted that climate change is real. His autobiography shows the reader that Dr. Houghtons's background in atmospheric physics makes him a truly authoritative expert in the field. His combination of scientific rigour and
humanism is evident throughout the text. I do have a few doubts about matters he raises, but these are trivial compared with
the importance of the work he has done, and the need to continue it against the enormous power of the fossil fuel lobbies. I can
certainly recommend the book
