About this book

At present climate change is a controversial topic. This book deals with climate change and its consequences. It examines the major controversies and locates them in the broader context of the climatic changes that have taken place in the past. Beginning with a definition of climate change, this volume provides a general account of the way the atmosphere and oceans work to produce climates and an outline of the astronomical and other influences that effect climatic changes. It then describes different types of climate that have prevailed in the past and explains the way past climates are studied. An important topic covered is the greenhouse effect and the history of this idea, which leads into an overview of the present concern over global warming induced by an enhanced greenhouse effect.
