An Accidental Discovery: piecing together the history of man-made climate change

Review by: Good Story Press on June 11, 2013 :
In my initial review, I missed seeing the star rating function below the review box, so I didn't give a rating. For a concise and objective summary of the history of the science of global warming, I give this report five stars.

Review by: Good Story Press on June 11, 2013 : (no rating)
"An Accidental Discover . . ." is a concise summary of the key scientific observations and discoveries that have led to our present understanding of anthropogenic global warming. The report presents the key discoveries of thinkers, tinkerers and scientists from the 19th century to the present day in brief summaries that make this large subject easy to digest. This is a good book to use as a reference for further study, or as a source of talking points when discussing the science of climate change with people who may not have a grasp of the origins of the subject.
