Johansen digests the explosion of scientific work on global warming that has been published since 1980 and presents it in a set that is sure to be the indispensable standard reference work on the topic. The information here is of importance to just about everyone on the planet--for the findings of global warming science and technology should dictate the choices we make today to secure our common future.
