Produced by Climate Central - a highly regarded, independent, nonprofit journalism and research organization founded in 2008 - and reviewed by scientists at major educational and research institutions the world over, Global Weirdness summarizes, in clear and accessible prose, everything we already know about the science of climate change. It explains what is likely to happen to the climate in the future and lays out in practical terms what we can and cannot do to avoid further shifts. Sixty easy-to-read entries tackle such questions as: Is climate ever normal? Why and how do fossil-fuel burning and other human practices produce greenhouse gases? What natural forces have caused climate change in the past? What risks does climate change pose for human health? What accounts for the diminishment of mountain glaciers and small ice caps around the world since 1850? What are the economic costs and benefits of reducing carbon emissions?

Global Weirdness enlarges our understanding of how climate change affects our daily lives and arms us with the incontrovertible facts we need to make informed decisions about the future of the planet and of humankind.

    " Good for what it was, which is a simplified explanation of climate change for someone who needs it laid out as straight-forwardly as possible. However, for someone who's got a grip on the science already, this was pretty boring. "
