Overview

Unlike most books on climate change, this one examines the current trends in climate—and predictions for the future—relative to similar events in Earth’s history. This history paints a picture of repeated cataclysms in which most life on Earth was lost. However, our planet now hosts a species potentially capable of mitigating, regulating, and/or moderating the factors affecting global climate. According to widely accepted data, we have a narrowing window of time to make the necessary changes before we become just another name on a long list of species wiped out through climate catastrophes. Trexler, a paleontologist in Montana, makes powerful and specific suggestions for how the challenges facing our planet can be lessened or avoided.

Excellent review of the geological past and the present trends. Goes beyond the short-term warmer period that is coming and reviews the real potent problems that could come up. Compares the future to past geological eras and how that can be a forecast of the future.
