Global warming and the resulting climate change are among the most serious environmental problems facing the world community. Global Warming: The Complete Briefing is the most comprehensive guide available to the subject. A world-renowned expert, Sir John Houghton explores the scientific basis of global warming and the likely impacts of climate change on human society.

Climate change and global warming are well up on the current political agenda. There are urgent questions everyone is asking: are human activities altering the climate? Is global warming a reality? How big are the changes likely to be?
Will there be more serious disasters; will they be more frequent? Can we adapt to climate change or can we change the way we do things so that we can slow down the change or even prevent it occurring?
Because the Earth’s climate system is highly complex, and because human behaviour and reaction to change is even more complex, providing answers to these questions is an enormous challenge to the world’s scientists.
As with many scientific problems only partial answers are available, but our knowledge is evolving rapidly, and the world’s scientists have been addressing the problems with much energy and determination.
Three major pollution issues are often put together in people’s minds: global warming, ozone depletion (the ozone hole) and acid rain. Although there are links between the science of these three issues (the chemicals which deplete ozone and the particles which are involved in the formation of acid rain also contribute to global warmings), they are essentially three distinct problems.
Their most important common feature is their large scale. In the case of acid rain the emissions of sulphur dioxide from one nation’s territory can seriously affect the forests and the lakes of countries which may be downwind of the pollution.
