Book Review: David Archer's 'The Global Carbon Cycle'

David Archer's new book, "The Global Carbon Cycle," one of the Princeton Primers in Climate, is a detailed, but readable look at the science behind the way the Earth reacts to carbon and other factors that relate to global climate. He discusses changes in the Earth's temperature throughout history and the reasons behind. Such factors as the gradual warming of the sun and changes in the Earth's orbit are examined.

Without some understanding of the science that goes beyond parroting what we hear in the form of sound bites on the evening news, we cannot have an informed discussion regardless of which side of the issue we choose to debate. For those with an interest in the facts and real science behind global warming, The Global Carbon Cycle wil arm you with facts, observable and measurable.

The Global Carbon Cycle is also available for the Kindle.
