Editorial Reviews


“It is a most welcome addition to the literature. The text is organized into two chapters: ‘Overview of Climate Change Science’ and ‘Status of Climate Change Research.’ Both short chapters are full of succinct, clearly explained information about the many causes and effects of climate change. … Farmer acknowledges the difficulty of covering such a broad topic in limited space, but he does a good job in accomplishing his goal. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.” (M. K. Cleaveland, Choice, Vol. 52 (8), April, 2015)

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
