Stories of extreme weather are always with us: floods, droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards... but today, all around the world, dramatic climate fluctuations are taking place. Unprecedented long-term changes - desertification, ice melting, new wind patterns, rising temperature - are bringing far-reaching economic, social, and ecological consequences. What is the cause of all this? Are humans responsible? And what can we do to avert impending disaster?

Global warming is the greatest threat to life on Earth today. Only those who understand this threat will be able to protect our planet for future generations. Climate describes the marvelous and complex workings of Earth's climate systems, from its primordial atmosphere to today's extreme changes in weather, ecology, and environment. Climate systems around the world are being transformed by rising temperatures. Every continent is undergoing alarming changes: melting glaciers, deadly droughts, severe storms, and loss of habitat for plants and animals - and humans. Greenhouse gases heat up the atmosphere, affecting crops and grazing lands, and unleashing deadly diseases. As polar ice caps melt, sea levels rise. Islands become submerged, coastal settlements flooded. Climate addresses the most pressing questions, such as how much carbon dioxide can the atmosphere safely hold? How high will sea levels rise? How will civilization cope with increasingly dangerous weather incidents? Climate will help us understand what must be done today for the sake of our planet tomorrow.

George Ochoa is a writer specializing in reference books on science and other subjects. His titles include The Wilson Chronology of Science and Technology, Inquiry and Learning: Realizing Science Standards in the Classroom, The Spanish Flu and Its Legacy, and The Writer's Guide to Creating a Science Fiction Universe. He also writes articles on pharmacy, surgery, and other areas of medicine.

Jennifer Hoffman, PhD, is a marine biologist and World Wildlife Fund consultant. She specializes in larval ecology, the effects of ultraviolet radiation, and the design of protected landscapes. Since graduating as a geologist, she has done research in marine environments from Antarctica, to Alaska as well as points in between. She received her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington, where she focused on early life stages of various marine organisms. She is a professor at the Ocean Research College Academy in Washington.

Tina Tin, PhD, is a World Wildlife Fund - affiliated climate scientist. She specializes in the impact of climate change in the polar regions and is currently conducting research on Antarctic sea ice. She received a degree in engineering from the University of Cambridge and her PhD in geophysics from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. She also works with Friends of the Earth and the U.S. Natural resources Defense Council (NRDC).
