About this book

Short quotations often are used to stimulate thought and evoke discussion. The intention of this book is no less ambitious. Drawing upon a series of quotations taken from the World Meteorological Organization-sponsored publication, "Climate: Into the 21st Century", the authors encourage thought and discussion on the earth's climate system, including its interrelation to human society and the environment, the impact of climate variability and climate extremes and change.
