Summary:
Presents a history of research into climatic changes. Warm winters, cool summers, freak tornadoes and furious hurricanes, the world is gradually becoming aware of a shift in global weather patterns, and not a little bit worried. Traces left by centuries of storms are writing a radically new history of our climate and posing a troublesome future.

Abstract:

Presents a history of research into climatic changes. Warm winters, cool summers, freak tornadoes and furious hurricanes, the world is gradually becoming aware of a shift in global weather patterns, and not a little bit worried. Traces left by centuries of storms are writing a radically new history of our climate and posing a troublesome future. Scientists are busy trying to read the signs left by those storms to determine whether the changes the world experiences are a result of the slow process of global warming or sudden climate crashes. Told in an engaging narrative style, this is the story about the mysterious ways the world's climate works and what it all means to the average person. John Cox, the author of Weather for Dummies and Storm Watchers, gives readers an inside look at the cutting edge science that takes us behind tomorrow's headlines. Physical evidence reveals that centuries of slow, creeping climate variations have actually been punctuated by far more rapid changes. Scientists must now consider the natural threat is greater than once thought.
