"This book's audience, in my view is a broad one: [all] who have the appetite and capacity for mastering the level of technical detail needed to understand—really understand—what global climate disruption is, where it is headed, what can be done, and how. No other book that I'm aware of offers this one's combination, for these purposes, of comprehensiveness, authoritativeness, currency, and readability . . . The intellectual terrain it covers is vast and sometimes demanding, but it will repay the efforts of all those able and willing to traverse it. May many do so."
(John P. Holdren Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology)
"Climate Change Science and Policy is the first book to successfully combine a discussion of the current state of climate science with ideas for climate mitigation in a comprehensive, yet surprisingly readable, collection of papers by authors working in both the physical and social sciences....This book presents the information needed to understand the myriad issues that define this effort...Highly recommended."
