Item Details

Each year people across the world report episodes of strange weather that are more numerous and more unprecedented than in prior years. Massive, record-breaking heat waves and crippling droughts ravage formerly moderate climates and regions, while locales that are normally warm experience prolonged freezing temperatures and blizzards. At the same time, hurricanes bigger and more intense than those of yesteryear pound coastal areas worldwide. For a while, scientists hoped these disturbing events might be flukes. But now they know they are part of a larger global trend, which has come to vbe called climate change. In large part, evidence shows, it is driven by human activities, especially the release of so-called greenhouse gases into Earth atmosphere. These gases trap too much of the sun's heat, in the process causing global weather mechanisms and patterns to become unstable and unpredictable. Experts say that global climate change is the biggest single immediate threat that humanity faces. Book jacket.
