Provides an overview of the earth's climate system before explaining the process of human-induced climate change in an informed yet easy to understand manner. Rapley's reasoned approach is undeniably accurate and compelling. Clear, thought-provoking and emotive, it can and should be read in one sitting. More people should read this book.

A quick and basic introduction of the science of global warming.

Based on fact it reads more like a PowerPoint presentation than a book with 1 to 3 point per page. Some longer sentences, a bit of structure and chapters would have been a plus.

Surely there is some good knowledge here for the people that don't know more about the topics and wants a 1-0-1 class this being said some points could have been developed more.

Sarcastically for a book talking about effort on global warming and climate cha

Should be compulsory to read. Without global collaboration there will be a very disappointing and unhealthy future for the generations to come.
