About this book

Introduction

Uncertainties of information on the problems of global climatology are a principal barrier for adequate understanding of the anthropogenic effects on global ecodynamics. The purpose of the book is to summarize existing information and assess the level of these uncertainties. We want to stimulate readers to think in the longer term about climate change and ecological damage that is being done to the planet Earth in the hope that it may remain fit for human habitation and a satisfying life style for future generations, not just the next generation or two.
