'... an exceptionally lucid account of the basic science of climate change ... [it] provides clear insights for non-specialists into how scientists probe into the workings of the climate system and why we have confidence in what we know.' Professor Will Steffen, Executive Director, ANU Climate Change Institute 'A readable, non-technical and fascinating overview of the global warming problem by a leading Australian geologist. This succinct review provides an authoritative and convincing demonstration of the magnitude and seriousness of this problem.' Professor Tom Wigley, Climate and Global Dynamics Division, University Corporation for Atmospheric Research 'The book fully references the relevant scientific literature throughout ... Highly recommended.' M. K. Cleaveland, Choice '... this volume has much to offer all readers and not just those who are familiar with Australia's weather and climate.' Peter Rogers, International Journal of Meteorology 'It is rare for one person to encapsulate what is known about climate change in a single manuscript. But Eggleton has done just that ... As a practicing scientist who lives and breathes climate change, I find tremendous value in this book ... It is a must-read for anyone who is concerned about the climate ... is a book that is accessible and accurate. It is hard to imagine this could have been done better.' John Abraham, Reports of the National Center for Science Education
