Description
British journalist and environmental activist Lynas has written two previous books and numerous magazine and newspaper articles on environmental issues, and is a well-known public speaker on the subject of climate change. As a resident of Oxfordshire, he experienced firsthand England's devastating floods of 2007, attributed by many to global warming. In his latest text, he draws on the full range of state-of-the-art research and sophisticated computer models to create a degree-by-degree picture of the planet's future as a result of global warming, based on estimates ranging from one to six degrees of temperature increase. In a concluding chapter he discusses the brief window of opportunity remaining for humans to make the necessary changes to be able to manage climate change effectively. Academic but accessible to the general reader. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
