MEDIA REVIEWS

"Climate change represents one of the greatest environmental and health challenges of our time." World Health Organization

"You could wade through dense academic detail from the IPCC. Or you could root out the Atlas of Climate Change, which condenses key findings from the scientists." The Guardian

"This is a remarkable piece of work and extremely readable." R K Pachauri, Chairman, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

"While as the authors state climate change touches everything and everyone, the value of The Atlas of Climate Change: Mapping the World's Greatest Challenge is that this premise is demonstrated visually in a concise manner expediting information transfer and learning. This makes this book an excellent communication tool intended for the media, the classroom, business professionals and policy makers." Gabriel Thoumi, mongabay.com

"The Atlas of Climate Change packs a lot of information into its limited page count and, unlike most other works, conveys a good deal of this cartographically. Covering the core issues, not just the indicators of climate change but its likely consequences and possible means of adaptation, this is a book that neatly summarises the position from a global perspective. All general libraries, including those serving the public and a non-specialist student clientele, should have a copy." Tony Chalcraft, Editor Reference Reviews, York, UK
