The Whole Story of Climate: What Science Reveals About the Nature of Endless Change
Climate change is a topic that inspires vigorous debate and strong emotions all around. But, like many heavily debated topics, it’s far more complicated and nuanced than it appears at first glance.
The Whole Story of Climate attempts to correct many of the false preconceived notions that people have about both the climate and the influence of man on climate change. Starting with an in-depth look at what geology can tell us about climate conditions in the past, the book balances atop the twin pillars of its narrative: understanding that climate is constantly changing while also acknowledging that humans are still having a dire impact on the planet.
Peters does an impressive job of exploring and explaining the many factors people attribute to human involvement in climate change and helps the reader to parse coincidental results that happen with natural climatic changes from the more dangerous and dire issues being caused by human intervention.
Although you won’t end up a true expert on climate by the end of the book, you will be far better prepared to understand the road ahead if you read The Whole Story of Climate.
