Dire Predictions: Understanding Global Warming - The Illustrated Guide to the Findings of the IPCC by Michael E. Mann

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been issuing the essential facts and figures on climate change for nearly two decades. But the hundreds of pages of scientific evidence quoted for accuracy by the media and scientists alike, remain inscrutable to the general public who may still question the validity of climate change.

Esteemed climate scientists Michael E. Mann and Lee R. Kump, have partnered with DK Publishing to present Dire Predictions-an important book in this time of global need. Dire Predictions presents the information documented by the IPCC in an illustrated, visually-stunning, and undeniably powerful way to the lay reader. The scientific findings that provide validity to the implications of climate change are presented in clear-cut graphic elements, striking images, and understandable analogies.

At times openly harressed by world class industry whores, forced to appear beside Michael Crichton of all people, while antiscience ideologues eagerly take turns metaphorically beating you in public with the political equivalent of soap bars in a sock. What to do? One way out would be to lower your profile. But if you're my courageous colleague Michael Mann, Associate Professor in the Department of Meteorology and Geosciences at Pennsylvania State University, founding member of the premier climate change blog Real Climate , and one of the original producers of the now famous Hockey Stick graph, you team up with like-minded fellow PSU Geoscientist Lee R.

In this book, esteemed climate scientists Michael E. Kump have partnered with the "information architects" at DK Publishing to produce Dire Predictions--essential reading for citizens of a world in distress. Dire Predictions, at just over pages, presents and expands upon the findings documented in the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC in an illustrated, visually stunning, and undeniably powerful way for the non-scientist. Michael E. His research involves the use of theoretical models and observational data to better understand Earth's climate system. He has received a number of honors and awards including NOAA's outstanding publication award in and selection by Scientific American as one of the fifty leading visionaries in science and technology in He made Bloomberg News' list of fifty most influential people in
