About this book

&i;Global Warning&o; is an authoritative and visually stunning book, unique in its approach. While most of the current literature on the subject is highly scientific, this book's aim is to educate the public at large. It features graphics and maps, hard-hitting text, and powerful pictures showing the plight the world is already facing. The tone is serious, but ultimately positive and outlines what we all need to do to safeguard our future. It provides an honest appraisal of a critical situation, and some practical advice about solutions - whether making small adjustments in everyday life, or raising public awareness across the globe.

This book serves as an invaluable tool to inform business leaders and the public alike of the consequences and opportunities associated with the ongoing increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide, and the repercussions of continuing "business as usual". It is clear about the problems which we face, but positive about the possibilities of averting the worst.
