Product Details


“This brilliant, engaging book will change the way one looks at the climate/global warming debate, climate change and climate science, human versus nonhuman drivers of climate change, and the implications of global warming/cooling for humans and societies…. Peters is thoughtful, thorough, and relentless… Essential.”


“A brilliant volume, unearthing new insight and churning the waters for a deeper hue and a better understanding of our dynamic world.”

San Francisco Book Review

“What to make of [confusing information no climate change]? Well, we laypersons can’t make much of it at all, because we lack the knowledge to place the data in context. Luckily, for those really interested, a solution is available.”

Philadelphia Inquirer

“Modern geology has shown that the only constant is change. Peters’s book – indispensable to those interested in climate change – takes the general reader on an elegantly written and engaging intellectual adventure into the history of the curious and clever ways that modern scientists have been able to construct a precise and richly detailed picture of the often-rapid variations of Earth’s climate. No matter your attitude toward the climate-change controversy, this book will prove enlightening and valuable.”

Jerry B. Gough, Emeritus professor, history of science, Washington State University
