Climate Change Micha Tomkiewicz Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

There are many books on global warming written entirely from a layman's perspective, and there is a great deal of scientific literature on this subject. But few if any books attempt to bridge the science to those who lack a rigorous background in mathematics, physics and chemistry--but who may be working on careers in environmental science and policy. The new text is designed to introduce the field of global climate change from a scientific perspective--but written in a way that is accessible to students with some or little science background. It reviews the basic principles of climatic thermodynamics and atmospheric chemistry and then goes on to explain historic trends and changes due to the burning of fossil fuels and other human-based activity on earth. It includes loads of reference sources and citations from current political and scientific work will help students study further if they desire. Highlights include * A broad overview of the thermodynamics of climate, the biosphere and earth chemistry * An overview of climate data in the context of geological time * A clear explanation of the physics of the greenhouse effect--from black body radiation to heat trapping effects of CO2, methane and Nitrous Oxide * Modeling climate predictions * The economics of fuel choices in the broadest context of climate change * Appendices, including references and sources and current and proposed international climate treaties
