    1. If I had rated this book immediately after reading it, I would likely have rated it higher. I read this book first as part of a two-book point/counter-point argument about Global Warming. It is well-written and well-illustrated, and it seemed at the time of reading like a good summary of the argument for Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW).However, the counter-point book that I read was an argument for Milankovitch cycles and insolation being the cause of the earth's climate change rather than CO [...]


    2. This book is primarily a readable summary of the 2007 4th Assessment report of the International Panel on Climate Change. It is important for anyone who wants to know the actual facts of what is and isn't known. Although no specific scientific knowledge is required, it is assumed that the reader is familiar with scientific thinking. If you are put off by graphs, charts and tables of scientific data you may have some difficulty with this book. The last two chapters especially impress on the reade [...]


    3. It's not much fun to read, frankly, both because of the grim material it covers and because it's written like a textbook. That said, it totally deserves five stars for being accessible, meticulous, elegant, persuasive, thorough, and terrifically informative. It spends more time countering the arguments of climate change deniers than you might feel the need for if you don't have major doubts yourself, but it does make very clear how indefensible that denial is, not to mention unconscionable. An e [...]


    4. This book is a more readable summary of the main findings of the IPCC's 4th assessment report. It includes the authors' interpretation of the report and some history behind it. The authors do a fine job of presenting the findings in a way that is both technically correct and accessible to a reasonably intelligent and educated person.


    5. Very good book for a scientifically literate layperson or a scientist looking for more background on the topic. Nobody could read all of the volumes of the last IPCC report, but this summarizes the results nicely.
