  • The book provides an accessible background to the natural geological (and other) processes that have driven climate change over the Earth's history
  • Focuses on some of the key arguments that climate skeptics and deniers use against taking effective steps to bring climate change under control
  • Uses climate history to refute many of the arguments that are used to deny the existence of anthropogenic climate change

    • Focuses specifically on the history of climate change
    • Offers a comprehensive overview of the various natural mechanisms that have led to climate changes in the near and distant past, and
