About my book, Thoughts of a Scientist, Citizen, and Grandpa on Climate Change
We are now live in a critical moment in the history of human civilization and have a choice of monumental importance to make.
Are we or are we not going to aggressively address the issue of anthropogenic global warming (AGW)? If we do, the short term adjustments will be challenging, but if we don’t, the longer term consequences are sure to be horrendous – certainly during the lives of our grandchildren and very likely during the lives of our children.
So, how do we decide which of these choices to make? For starters, it helps a great deal to understand what Mother Nature is likely to do in response to the impacts of mankind on our planet – and what She does do can be predicted only via our understanding of the science involved. Therefore, a primary goal of Thoughts of a Scientist, Citizen, and Grandpa on Climate Change is to provide the general public with an improved understanding of the causes of climate change. The economic and social impacts of the needed changes will also be addressed.
