Abstract:

"What does climate change mean? How will global warming affect our lives in the future? Is it the cause of wilder storms and more frequent drought? Are these events inevitable? Tim Flannery tells the fascinating story of climate change over millions of years to help us understand the predicament we face. By burning fossil fuels we are increasing the levels of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, causing our planet to become warmer. Every nation is differently affected by these changes but we have one thing in common - we are now the weather makers, and the new climate we are creating threatens the future of our civilisation. Tim Flannery shows how we can all help to combat these problems."--Provided by publisher.
