About this book

This book gives the complete picture of the single biggest issue facing the planet.

Cutting a swathe through scientific research and political debate, this completely updated 3rd edition lays out the facts and assesses the options - global and personal - for dealing with the threat of a warming world. The guide looks at the evolution of our atmosphere over the last 4.5 billion years and what computer simulations of climate change reveal about our past, present and future.

This edition includes scientific findings that have emerged since the 2007 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), as well as background on recent controversies and an updated politics section that reflects post-Copenhagen developments.

If there is one book that ticks all the boxes of accessibility, authority and timeliness it is The Rough Guide to Climate Change The Daily Telegraph
