A Short Introduction to Climate Change by Tony Eggleton
A Short Introduction to Climate Change was written to explain climate change – one of the most important issues of our time – to everyday people with enquiring minds. It covers developments in climate science over the past 250 years and shows that recent climate change is more than the result of natural variability.
The grape harvest in Europe has been getting earlier and earlier for the past 200 years; over the last century Australian and global rainfall patterns have changed; and the area of Arctic sea ice in summer is steadily diminishing. Such natural changes are evidence of global warming.
This easy-to-understand book is free of technical terms and considers the consequences of our use of fossil fuels, discusses ways to reduce further global warming and concludes with ideas about the future of our planet.
