About this book

Although global in scale, the impact of climate change will be felt at the local level. Refocusing attention away from the ice shelves disintegrating in the Antarctic, the flooding of Pacific islands, and carbon inventories measured in billions of tons, the author turns to changes that threaten to transform one of America's great wildernesses, the Adirondack region, into a damaged and unfamiliar landscape.

With the aid of comprehensive color illustrations, graphs, charts and maps, the book demonstrates the fundamental reality of climate change on a local level and presents analysis and discussion of the available data for the Adirondacks.
