    In recent decades, the scientific ocean drilling community has prided itself in being able to achieve the full recovery of hundreds of meters of the sedimentary section through coring, allowing scientists to decipher the history of Earth’s climate in its fullest resolution. He has published 3 books: Earth Materials and Earth Processes, The Groundwater Monitoring System and Hydrogeology at Love Canal and Peat Bogs and Hydrology in the Lake Superior Region. John Cook is the creator of Skeptical Science, winner of the Australian Museum Eureka Prize for the Advancement of Climate Change Knowledge.

      Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change. We knew everything we needed to know, and nothing stood in our way. Nothing, that is, except ourselves. Climate change - Climate change - Evidence for climate change: All historical sciences share a problem: As they probe farther back in time, they become more reliant on fragmentary and indirect evidence. Earth system history is no exception. High-quality instrumental records spanning the past century exist for most parts of the world, but the records become sparse in the 19th century, and few.

    Prior to the mid s, geoscientists believed that our climate could only change relatively slowly, on timescales of thousands of years or longer. But evidence from ice and sediment cores showed that belief was wrong. Earth's climate had changed rapidly in the past—in some cases, within mere decades.   The Ten Best Science Books of New titles explore the workings of the human body, the lives of animals big and small, the past and future of planet earth and how it’s all connected.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Climate in earth history. Washington, D.C.: National Academy Press, (OCoLC) Document Type. In this internationally acclaimed book, Emeritus Professor Hubert Lamb examines what we know about climate, how the past record of climate can be reconstructed, the causes of climatic variation, 4/5(1).

A Climate Model for the History Books April 5th, by Adam Voiland Decades or even centuries from now, when enough time has passed for historians to write definitive accounts of global warming and climate change, two names are likely to make it into history books: Syukuro Manabe and Richard Wetherald.

Therefore, this book on Climate, Earth Processes and Earth History by Richard Huggett fills an important gap. It discusses the great, climate-related areas of the Earth's environment. Earth's climate has been warmer and colder, but mostly warmer, through Earth history.

Many natural processes change Earth's climate. These include sunspots, plate tectonics, volcanism, asteroid impacts, and Earth's motions.

The Pleistocene Ice Age lasted from 2 million to 14, years ago. The story of Earth’s climate contains much more than what humans have recorded. For example, sometime around billion years ago, it rained for a million straight years. Poof, mind blowing. And scientists say about billion years ago the sky was most likely pink due to.

Tracing the political and scientific history of the climate crisis, Nathaniel Rich Climate in Earth History book how the public, with scientific backing, lined up to tackle climate change — until a coordinated campaign by lobbyists, corporations and politicians cast doubt on the whole thing.

We all know what happened next. “In a new, beautifully illustrated book, Andrew Revkin, best known for his decades of science and environment reporting at the New York Times, describes many of the most pivotal moments, critical scientific breakthroughs and important people in the climate’s rich and varied billion-year history.

Climate change is the long-term alteration in Earth’s climate and weather patterns. It took nearly a century of research and data to convince the vast majority. Now expanded into book form, Losing Earth tells the human story of climate change in even richer, more intimate terms.

It reveals, in previously unreported detail, the birth of climate denialism and the genesis of the fossil fuel industry’s coordinated effort to thwart climate policy through misinformation propaganda and political s: Climate has changed throughout Earth history. Much of the time Earth’s climate was hotter and more humid than it is today, but climate has also been colder, as when glaciers covered much more of the planet.

The most recent ice ages were in the Pleistocene. Earth's Climate History: Implications for Tomorrow By James E. Hansen and Makiko Sato — July Humans lived in a rather different world during the last ice age, which pea years ago.

An ice sheet covered Canada and parts of the United States, including Seattle, Minneapolis and New York City. The history of the scientific discovery of climate change began in the early 19th century when ice ages and other natural changes in paleoclimate were first suspected and the natural greenhouse effect first identified.

In the late 19th century, scientists first argued that human emissions of greenhouse gases could change the climate. Climate Change: Observed Impacts on Planet Earth, Second Edition, serves as a broad, accessible guide to the science behind this often political and heated debate by providing scientific detail and evidence in language that is clear to both the climatologist and the non-specialist.

The best books on Climate Change and Uncertainty recommended by Kate Marvel ‘When we talk about climate change, we sometimes assume people will be swayed by one more graph, one more coherent argument.

But that’s not how people work. More facts don’t change minds, and deeply held views don’t always dictate behaviour.’. Losing Earth: A Recent History is a book written by Nathaniel Rich. The book is about the existence of scientific evidence for global warming for decades while it was politically denied, and the eventual damage that will occur as a result.

The story was first published. Nathaniel Rich observes in “Losing Earth: A Recent History” that “nearly every conversation we have in about climate change was being held in ” His gripping, depressing, revelatory book.
