Climate: the force that shapes our world and the future of life on Earth

Source(s):  Rodale Books International

A guide to the Earth's climate, past, present and future Climate-related topics are seldom out of the news, from the increasing understanding of the forces that shaped past millennia to our growing anxiety about what the future may hold. And with good reason - the climate of our planet influences everything about the way our lives are lived. This authoritative, full-colour, illustrated book tells the story of cataclysmic events that wreak cataclysmic consequences. Making sense of a highly controversial and complex topic, Climate Change explains how scientists unearth the secrets of the past and explores their predictions for the Earth's future. The book is divided into two parts, taking readers through the birth of climate in our solar system, the changing climates of the prehistoric era, the part that climate played in the rise and fall of ancient civilizations, climate today and the emerging evidence of the effects of humankind, how we can limit climate change and how we can/may have to adapt our lives in future. We cannot afford to ignore what is happening around us - and this important book is a wake-up call, a careful and reasoned call to arms for the people of the world to protect the future of their planet.
