A field guide to the greenhouse effect, "Global Warming Unchecked" focuses on the near-term changes in weather patterns we can watch for as signs of global warming. According to Harold W. Bernard, Jr., the headline-making weather events of the 1980s - droughts, heat waves, and exceptionally strong hurricanes were ominous harbingers of our climatic future. The weather patterns of the 1990s may offer compelling evidence that we have crossed the Rubicon of global warming. Far from simply offering unsubstantiated predictions, however, Bernard discusses in detail the reasons behind his forecasts. He addresses the whys and hows of global warming and describes, on a regional basis, the likely climatic, environmental, economic, and societal impacts of the greenhouse effect in the United States over the next half-century or so. "Global Warming Unchecked" warns of the converging crises of climate and energy in the United States. By working now to forestall one crisis, we can forestall the other, through the development of alternative energy sources - if the citizens of the U.S. have the courage and foresight to act. "Technology and science aren't the answer", - Bernard admonishes, "People are".
