This is an intelligent look at the invaluable contribution geology has made to our understanding of climate change. In the publicity surrounding global warming, we rarely hear from geologists, who for almost 200 years have been studying the history of Earth's dramatic and repeated climate revolutions, as revealed in the evidence of rocks and landscapes. This volume describes the important contributions that geology has made to our understanding of climate change. What emerges is a much more complex and nuanced picture than we usually see. Authoritative yet accessible this is essential reading for understanding on of the world's most important contemporary debates.
