There is no longer any doubt that the Earth is getting hotter: the question remains, why? Combining the research of a scholar with a novelist's storytelling skill, Gale Christianson weaves together incredible events and unlikely characters to create a fascinating account of the phenomenon of global warming -- the so-called "greenhouse effect". From the demise of the Anasazi in the American Southwest to the 1997 Kyoto Conference on the Environment, Christianson's narrative sheds new light on what may be the most remarkable change in the environment since the retreat of the glaciers some 10,000 years ago.
A dynamic and lively history of science, this compelling book will also lead readers to rethink the unique relationship we have to the world we live in.
