By Stefan Thiesen on April 28, 2001
Format: Hardcover
This book was written by the worlds no. 1 climate experts: Nobel Laureate Paul Crutzen and Thomas Graedel. If anyone still has any misunderstandings about the inner workings of the climate system - especially as part of the Earth's ecosystem at large - he should read this book. Whatever you want to know about the atmosphere - it is in here, be it atmospheric chemistry, atmospheric physics, the ozone-hole problem, the formation of smog, the greenhouse effect, long-term climate evolution, natural versus man-made changes - just everything. This topic concerns us all, since understanding the science behind global environmental change now may well prove to be crucial for the long-term survival of mankind.
The book is not easy, but it is accessible for an informed lay person. At the same time it is a fabulous resource for a graduate student in the field as well. It would be nice to see more textbooks of this calibre on the market. Well done.
Crutzen is THE authority in the field. Ignoring his warning is like driving a car after a mechanic told you that the brakes are not functioning - which is the current course of action.
