  • Contraction and Convergence

    25 June 2003

    Aubrey Meyer has done that rare thing - to come up with a simple and elegant solution to an apparently intractable problem. Contraction and Convergence is Meyer's solution to the climate crisis, a crisis which he states bluntly is nothing less than a "survival" issue for humancivilisation.

  • Climate Change 2001

    25 June 2003

    The publication of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) Third Assessment Report was a landmark event, and one which made headlines around the world. Based on an unprecedented collaborative effort throughout almost the entire worldwide scientific community, this three-volume epic brought the dramatic news that global warming could reach 5.8 oC by 2100.

  • The Carbon War

    25 June 2003

    Jeremy Leggett should know about the oil industry - he used to work in it, helping to turn out scores of newly-trained petroleum geologists through his work as an academic at London's Imperial College. Then in the hot summer of 1988 he underwent a full-scale eco-conversion, prompted by increasing fears about the role played by greenhouse gases in causing global warming.

  • Global Warming

    25 June 2003

    Non-experts are often surprised to hear just how uncontroversial climate change science has become in recent years, and Houghton's Complete Briefing is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand more about the strong scientific consensus underpinning global warming.

  • The Heat is On

    25 June 2003

    This unashamedly political book focuses more on the industry-led campaign to deny global warming than on the nitty-gritties of the science underpinning it (this is where it defers to the reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change).

  • When life nearly died

    18 June 2003

    Global warming over the next hundred years could trigger a catastrophe which rivals the worst mass extinction in the planet's entire history, according to new evidence chronicled in this new book.
