Summary
"Assessing Climate Change attempts to answer a number of essential questions in relation to global warming and climate change, uniquely providing a balanced and impartial discussion of this controversial subject. It shows how the Earth's climate has varied in the past, particularly during the past 1000 years. The book critically assesses the reliability of 'proxies' for historical temperatures and the 'hockey stick' version of global temperatures for the past millennium, and provides a careful analysis of how well near-surface temperatures of land and ocean have been monitored over the past 100 years, and the utility and significance of a single global average temperature." "The author compares the current global warming trend with past fluctuations in Earth's climate, and discusses whether the present warming trend is primarily just another in a series of natural climate fluctuations as opposed to a direct result of human activities. By examining the credibility of the global climate models which accuse greenhouse gasses of causing the temperature rise of the 20th century, Assessing Climate Change provides a better understanding of what might lie ahead in the future."--Jacket
