This collection of essays approaches global climate change from a variety of perspectives. Several of the essays try to make the science understandable and to point out what the likely effects will be on the global scale as well as at the local level. Other chapters address the science of climate change, underscoring the difficulty in communicating environmental science. Finally, two chapters speculate about what the climate change will mean for the next few generations and for human society in general.
