Our simmering planet: what to do about global warming?
Heat waves in Delhi and Athens; hurricane Mitch in Central America; floods and tornadoes in the USA; floods in Britain and China—all are unprecedented in severity and in frequency. What is happening to the world's weather? What are the world's governments doing about it? This book takes us through the science, and behind the politics, to explore climate instability, global warming, and the likely impact of increases in average temperatures, rising oceans, and shifts in rainfall patterns in all regions of the world.
