The author covers all approaches to the science and possible remedies, arguing that 'uncertainty is inevitable, but risk is certain'. This edition takes into account the latest analyses of climate change, such as Arctic sea ice and rapid sea-level rise, the recently published IPCC Synthesis Report, and the new policies of governments around the world. New assessment of the need for stricter emissions reductions on the one hand and of new technologies to achieve this on the other is included, as well as recognition of new developments in transport. While the message is clear that climate change is here (and in some areas, might be too far gone), there is still hope for the future, and the ideas presented in this book will inspire people to take action. -- Publisher details.
