The Britannica Guide to Climate Change
An unbiased guide to the key issues facing our planet.
There are few subjects that divide opinion more than climate change. What is the truth? What is the difference between the scientific evidence and the rhetoric? Can the solution be found in a global political treaty or individual action?
This Britannica Guide gives a clear overview of the scientific evidence, from data showing how the atmosphere has changed in the last 4.5 billion years to more recent studies on the symptoms of a warming planet and the global effects of greenhouse gases, deforestation, and pollution. The guide introduces you to the possible solutions and key figures in the debate: the Kyoto Agreement, the IPCC, Gaia, the growth of green architecture and the impact of personal green policies such as energy saving light bulbs, carbon foot printing and recycling.
