About this book

Sir John Houghton's life chronicles the history of climate science. As progress has been made in the scientific measuring of climate, a worrying picture has emerged. And as Houghton and others have sought to make those worries clear, they have discovered that, for some, this is an inconvenient truth. He says 'The warning is now urgent. The science is now robust, time is moving on, and humankind is responding far too slowly. God has granted us stewardship of this planet . It is a creation full of wonder and we must do everything in our power to keep it so.' 'The warning has always been there, but opposing forces have prevented us from hearing it.' Sir John Houghton is still battling. In the Eye of the Storm is part of that battle.
