Summaries and Reviews
Examines the history of climate change and its impact on the earth. description: Product Description: At present climate change is a controversial topic and A Change in the Weather deals with climate change and its consequences. It examines the major controversies and locates them in the broader context of the climatic changes that have taken place in the past. Beginning with a definition of climate change, this volume provides a general account of the way the atmosphere and oceans work to produce climates and an outline of the astronomical and other influences that effect climatic changes. It then describes different types of climate that have prevailed in the past and explains the way past climates are studied. An important topic covered is the greenhouse effect and the history of this idea, which leads into an overview of the present concern over global warming induced by an enhanced greenhouse effect. Filled with interesting facts on climate and climate change, A Change in the Weather provides a comprehensive survey of the issues surrounding this important topic.
