Discovery of Global Warming by Spencer R. Weart
Book DescriptionIn 2001 an international panel of distinguished climate scientists announced that the world was warming at a rate without precedent during at least the last ten millennia, and that warming was caused by the buildup of greenhouse gases from human activity. The story of how scientists reached that conclusion - by way of unexpected twists and turns - was the story Spencer Weart told in "The Discovery of Global Warming". Now he brings his award-winning account up to date, revised throughout to reflect the latest science and with a new conclusion that shows how the scientific consensus caught fire among the general world public, and how a new understanding of the human meaning of climate change spurred individuals and governments to action.

Books By Author Spencer R. Weart
Rise of Nuclear Fear, Paperback (March 2012)
After the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant had a meltdown, protesters around the world challenged nuclear power. Climate change has never aroused this visceral dread. Weart dissects this paradox, showing that powerful images surrounding nuclear energy hold us captive, allowing fear, rather than facts, to drive our thinking and public policy.

This survey of the history of conflict finds that fully democratic nations have never made war on other democracies. Using case studies ranging through history from ancient Athens to modern America, the author analyzes instances in which democracies have confronted each other with military force.
