A book specially designed to be read by non-scientists and scientists alike.
Written by Dr Howard Brady, Alumnus Scientist of the Year, Northern Illinois University, who undertook four expeditions to Antarctica with the US Office of Polar Programs.
It addresses the questions we all ask:
Are storms really getting worse and more frequent?
Is sea level rising at a steady pace or accelerating?
Are the ice caps really melting away?
How do climate models work and how good are they?
Is carbon dioxide really in control?
Where does the Sun fit in all of this?
Are we going to fry?
There is detailed science, as well as humor and some interesting stories.
well-thought-out chapters are presented with reader friendly diagrams
and graphs (176 pages in total). Each can be read in its own right.
The book reads extremely well and, crucially, is just plain interesting.
