From the Introduction: The weather we experience today is different from that of the Little Ice Age of the 17th century and of the Middle Ages...Today, though, there are fears that the climate may be changing faster than it has done for thousands of years and that the gases we release into the air, from our cars, factories, domestic fires, power stations, farming, and forest clearance may be accelerating that change...If we are to make informed decisions about climate change and the possibility that our activities may be partly responsible for it, we need to know something of the way the atmosphere works, of how our weather is produced.-Michael Allaby For most of history
