Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

"Few textbooks presently give such a comprehensive and clear account of the complexities of the climate system. Throughout, the book is very readable and I recommend it thoroughly."
--Grant Bigg in Weather
"...contains useful information on all aspects of physical climatology from boundary layer processes to global models. It has a good index which allows ready access to specific subjects...will be useful to students wanting more than a descriptive approach to climatology."
From the Back Cover
The science of climatology began to evolve rapidly in the last third of the twentieth century. This rapid development arose from several causes. During this period, the view of the Earth from its moon made people more aware of the exceptional nature of their planetary home at about the same time that it became widely understood that humans could alter our global environment.

If you are scheduled to take a Physical Climatology course, you have access to the syllabus of the course well in advance of the course's term beginning and you come across this title as the text that will be used, send your professor an email explaining to him or her that this book is overpriced and ineffective as a text from which the students will be able to learn. Not everyone goes to graduate school, where texts like this may be commonplace, and this book is being used for a class needed in order to obtain a Bachelor of Science Degree. I give it a 0 out of 5 stars (even though I rated it 1, which is the lowest possible rating).
