About this book

Mark Twain's comment that everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it no longer applies: human activities have altered the global climate, and governments are having to act now to avoid more extreme perturbations.

This book examines the factors responsible for global climate change and the geophysical, biological, economic, legal and cultural consequences of such changes. It highlights the complexity of decision-making under uncertainty, contrasting the methods that various disciplines employ to evaluate past and future conditions.
