Review:

...a refreshing essay by a sensitive individual who cares genuinely about the problem to convey his concerns to a wider public....>>>> (Overseas Development)

A most important contribution to the future climate debate: a debate that is surely destined to warm with the world's climate in the coming years. Sir Crispin's views on the relationship of potential climatic change and world politics are of particular value as he is) so far as I am aware) the first diplomat and man of affairs to enter this field armed with expert knowledge of both the science and world politics.>>> (Johnson, Brian Overseas Development)

...should be read widely by the public. As a basic primer, it will also be a godsend to politicians, administrators, businessmen and educational institutions, including schools, which teach how science and technology are related to society...a model oflucidity and conciseness...>>> (Johnson, Brian New Scientist)

The book provides us with an informed, well argued and realistic assessment of the impact of climatic change, along with some constructive suggestions as to how its consequences might be tackled.... Tickell...commendably appeals to the better natures of the world's governments to make a move in that direction.>>> (The Ecologist)
