The Climate Question

Natural Cycles, Human Impact, Future Outlook

Eelco J. Rohling

  • Discusses climate change in straightforward terms without complications
  • Illustrates the impact of large climate changes and uses this as context for the impacts of modern changes, leading to an understanding of the potential scale of impacts in the immediate future, and how long it may take for nature to recover
  • Compares and contrasts natural climate variations (before humans) with industrial-age changes, providing an understanding of the differences and similarities between natural climate changes and those caused by humans
