About this book

Global Warming takes one of the hot issues of our time and surveys it in historical context, creating an intellectual portrait of multi-century shifts in thinking that have led to gradual acceptance of global warming as a reality. The book summarizes pertinent aspects of geology, earth science, and climate science in easy-to-read terms. It then frames this background in terms of cultural and social shifts, including the Industrial Revolution, conspicuous consumption, and modern environmentalism.

In addition, a study of the ebb and flow of cultural and political reception relates the issue to religious and social ideas. The information presented here will enable readers to understand the scientific case stating that human activity has caused an unprecedented warming in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Technical and political objections to this thesis are also covered, so that readers are encouraged to form their own opinions on this critical subject.
