Is humanity out of time on Earth as Stephen Hawkins suggests? Or is global warming just a one-time speed bump in the road for humanity?
Either way, climate change, whether man-made, nature-made, or a combination of both, is a global occurrence that must not be ignored. The climate is warming. We must behave as if man is a significant contributor and search for ways to keep the Earth’s ecosystems in balance. We cannot take a wait-and-see-approach to the future. The Earth will not negotiate with man.
The study of climate change remains a scientific enigma. Continued scientific debate and discussion are needed to understand better how the Earth’s system reacts to human activity and vice versa. This book discusses the major issues confronting scientists and climate change.
