9780130835024: Sowing the Wind: Reflections on the Earth's Atmosphere
From Library Journal:

Science writer Young's book consists of two parts, the first describing the atmosphere, its evolution and workings; the second describing three major problems related to people's interaction with the atmosphere--the greenhouse effect, depletion of the ozone layer, and acid rain. Like Earth's Aura (LJ 11/1/77), Young's previous book on the atmosphere, this is a lucid, well-reasoned, and even engaging account aimed at the lay reader. It is a good work for public libraries desiring a book on atmospheric problems; however, since there are a number of other recent books dealing with these topics already on the shelves, demand for this book may be limited.

From Publishers Weekly:

Young defines weather systems and climatic change, calls attention to acid rain and the ozone layer, and takes a cautious look at the greenhouse effect. "To readers confused by conflicting reports on pollution and global warming, this guide to atmospheric science offers clarification," said PW . "A valuable addition to the environmentalist bookshelf." Illustrated.
