Howard Lowe, geologist and environmentalist: This book attempts to reach the broad public to explain the history of climate change and influence fossil fuels have on climate. It is recommended reading for everyone, whether you are a climate change alarmist or not. The planet's geological and climate history is fascinating. We don't know of any such beautiful and wonderful place for life in the universe. Best if we understand it and make the right decisions to support humanity, the environment and wildlife.
