Description: Climate Changeis geared toward a variety of students and general readers who seek the real science behind global warming. Exquisitely illustrated, the volume introduces the basic science underlying both the natural progress of climate change and the effect of human activity on the deteriorating health of the planet. Straightforward and even-handed, noted author Edmond A. Mathez synthesizes the work of leading scholars in climatology and related fields. His book concludes with an extensive chapter on energy production, anchoring the text in economic and technological realities and suggesting ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.Climate Changegrows out of a major 2008 exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History and scheduled for a world tour-indeed the science in this book will be seen by millions around the globe. The book opens with the climate system fundamentals; the workings of the atmosphere and ocean, their chemical interactions via the carbon cycle, and the scientific framework for understanding climate change. Mathez then brings the climate of the past to bear on our present predicament, highlighting the importance of paleoclimatology in understanding the current climate system. Subsequent chapters explore the changes already occurring around us and what they imply for the future. In a special feature, Jason E. Smerdon, associate research scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, has prepared an innovative Student Companion Appendix.
