Overview

The life of one of the world's most influential climate-change scientists, and his battle to get the truth heard

Sir John Houghton's life chronicles the history of climate science, and this, his life story, is a wake-up call for those who care about the weather, the environment, and their impact upon our lives. As progress has been made in the scientific measuring of climate, a worrying picture has emerged. And as Houghton and others have sought to make those worries clear, they have discovered that, for some, this is an inconvenient truth. Houghton says "The warning is now urgent. The science is now robust, time is moving on, and humankind is responding far too slowly. God has granted us stewardship of this planet. It is a creation full of wonder and we must do everything in our power to keep it so." Sir John Houghton is still battling to have his voice heard, and this book, his story serves as ammunition for the fight. Buy it, read it, pass it on.
