YR 2007 SN 9780262050890 0262050897 AB Kerry Emanuel outlines the basic science of climate change and how the current consensus has emerged. Although it is impossible to predict exactly when the most dramatic effects will be felt, he argues, we can be confident that we face real dangers: an increase in the intensity and power of hurricanes and flooding, and more rapidly advancing deserts. But just as our actions have created the looming crisis, so too might they avert it. What We Know About Climate Change shows us where to begin.
