Mark Lynas

"Bruce Johansen's three-volume epic, Global Warming in the 21st Century, is in many ways the work the world has been waiting for. Scientifically authoritative, fully comprehensive but excellently written, this is the ultimate work on the ultimate threat. It has long been established that global warming presents the greatest threat ever to human and natural survival. Well, Global Warming in the 21st Century presents the definitive guide to the nature of this threat and what we can do to avert it."

Mark Lynas, author of High Tide: The Truth about Our Climate Crisis

Ross Gelbspan

"Of all the reference books on global warming, none is as thorough, thoughtful and easy to navigate as Bruce Johansen's series. His grasp of the science is as meticulous as his presentation is lucid. Combining clear reporting of the impacts of a warming atmosphere with ground-level descriptions from people affected by these ominous changes, Johansen has provided a lasting and invaluable resource about a subject that will only continue to attract more and more attention in the coming years."
