Mark Twain's comment that everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it no longer applies: human activities have altered the global climate, and governments are having to act now to avoid more extreme perturbations. Global Climate Change examines the factors responsible for global climate change and the geophysical, biological, economic, legal, and cultural consequences of such changes. The book highlights the complexity of decision-making under uncertainty, contrasting the methods that various disciplines employ to evaluate past and future conditions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Global Climate Change hits a great balance of topics, is short enough to cover a range of basics while leaving a few weeks in a semester to delve into depth on some, and uses humor to take the edge off of what might be stressful information for some students (e.g., equations). * Duane Griffin, Bucknell University *
Professor Bloom has created the definitive textbook on climate change. It is comprehensive, well-written and organized * and timely. Bloom's book will inform and inspire a generation of students confronting the most urgent challenge of our time. *
This book seems to me a possible breakthrough work because of its scope. Its reach in explaining the field of climate change is unlike anything I've seen. * Roy Peterson, California Department of Water Resources *
This is a unique and indispensable volume for teaching contemporary global change. * Donald R. Strong, University of California, Davis, and Editor-in-Chief, Ecology *
The author has done a superb job. The most striking first impression is that the volume is visually stunning. The author has tried to weave together many divergent strands of climate science, engineering, and policy in such a way that the larger story clearly emerges from the detail, such that the motivation in students to understand and to act is given a compelling justification. At this goal, Bloom has succeeded spectacularly. * Barry W. Brook, The Quarterly Review of Biology *
