The media often portrays our climate future as a choice between bleak and bleaker, which may seem justified given the many impacts of global warming that we are already seeing. But it doesn’ t have to be that way, because if we understand the science behind global warming, then we can also see a pathway to its solution. In this book, astrophysicist/educator Jeffrey Bennett uses a Q&A format to provide a brief and extremely clear overview of the surprisingly simple basic science behind global warming, of the consequences of this warming, and of solutions that can help us alleviate and eventually reverse those consequences. This will help readers understand how we can in principle create a “ post-global warming” future, meaning a future in which today’ s children will someday be able to talk about global warming as a once-serious problem that we found a way to solve.
