Excellent introduction to a complex field,
This review is from: The Hot Topic: How to Tackle Global Warming and Still Keep the Lights on (Paperback)
I considered myself moderately well informed on the global warming (GW), having browsed websites, new scientist and wikipedia. I learnt a lot from this book, partly about the science, but mostly from the fascinating coverage of the political issues around GW.
It is also useful in knowing how to respond to the sceptic's points.
Overall it is a highly readable and nicely detailed (not too much to get bogged down in) account of all the surrounding issues. It is not a scare story... and does not over indulge in lurid alarmist doomsaying.
