In The Long Thaw, David Archer, one of the world's leading climatologists, reveals the hard truth that these changes in climate will be 'locked in', essentially forever. A human-driven, planet-wide thaw has already begun, and will continue to impact Earth's climate and sea level for hundreds of thousands of years. With a new preface that discusses recent advances in climate science, and the impact on global warming and climate change, The Long Thaw shows that it is still not too late to avert dangerous climate change--if we can find a way to co-operate as never before
