There is little doubt that the temperature of the Earth's atmosphere is rising. The last decade was the warmest of the century. And the last century was the warmest of the millenium. As the evidence for global warming accumulates, so too does support for the theory that the underlying cause is our release of too many greenhouse gases.In this compelling book, Fred Pearce weighs up the evidence for global warming, examines its probable impact on our climate, landscapes and ecosystems, and sets out what we can do to prevent it.Essential Science guides use a stimulating mix of lively illustrations and expert, jargon-free text to explain the most important scientific topics of the day - more clearly than ever before.
