This short book attempts to give a grounding in the Atmospheric system and the processes which are at work in the atmosphere. This background will hopefully give readers a better understanding of how human activity has influenced the world's climate since the 19th century.
Small climatic changes noticeable over one lifetime are evidence of something very significant going on in the atmosphere. The changes in the British Isles may have been small yet noticeable; in other parts of the world faster-rising sea levels and advancing deserts pose a threat to homes and livelihoods which are very serious.
It should be clear that the carbon dioxide we have already put in the atmosphere will cause continued global warming for the rest of the 21st century. The challenge is to avoid further unnecessary damage to our planet.
My hope is that readers will feel better informed in regard to the climatic changes which we are all experiencing.
