The No-Nonsense Guide to Climate Change (No-Nonsense Guides)

Instances of extreme weather are becoming more frequent, and there is a greater awareness of the disproportionate effect climate change has on poorer communities and countries in the South.

Interessant boek doch soms ingewikkeld geschreven en je wordt soms overladen met cijfers. Doch een compacte beschrijving van een ingewikkeld kluwen aan klimaatproblemen. De informatie is ondertussen wel al iets gedateerd maar de essentie van het werk blijft up to date.

This edition is from 2006, first published in 2001.
Like the other no-nonsense guides, this is very clearly and lucidly written, with diagrams, tables, etc.
The initial chapters describe the science of climate change and global warming, and the following chapters detail the impacts on farming, human health, and wildlife. To me the most interesting parts were the last chapters which described practical solutions to the problems.
Reading this kind of book can inevitably be depressing and worrying.

A wealth of data and references that are easy to read and follow. Plenty of depth and detail for such a slim volume.

Dinyar Godrej has been associated with New Internationalist since 1989, but joined as an editor in 2000. His interest in human rights has led him to focus on subjects like world hunger, torture, landmines, present day slavery and healthcare.
