Media reviews
'This book needs to be read, to be bought, or ordered from the local library.' -- Y Fignn Cymmis, Winter 1999 'Peter Bunyard has waded through a morass of information about how the climate system works and has communicated the key ideas in a style which is engaging, illuminating, succinct and accessible to non-scientists. This book is a very good place to start if you are beginning to explore the Earth system and our impact upon it.' -- Stephen Harding, Resurgence, October 2000 'Gives a clear overall picture of climate from its origins to the present day, comparing the cause and effect of natural changes with human influences. Almost anyone seeking a guide to climate science, in plain language that is clear and well-structured but does not shy away from complexities, will find what they need in this book. Even if you think you know quite a bit already, here is almost everything you ever wanted to know but were too afraid to ask.' -- Caspar Henderson, The Ecologist, October 2000 'Sobering and well-informed. The value of the book is that it gives a complete overview of climate as a whole, so that the reader can clearly understand how human activities have impacted on planetary systems, including the balancing act performed by oceanic currents and tropical forests. Essential reading in this field.' -- Scientific and Medical Network Review, December 1999
