Synopsis As scientists carefully search for clues in the sun and storm patterns from our distant past, they are gradually writing a new history of Earth's climate. It is now apparent that alterations in our climate can happen quickly and dramatically. Physical evidence reveals that centuries of slow, creeping climate variations have actually been punctuated by far more rapid changes. While this new paradigm represents a significant shift in out picture of Earth's past, the real question is what is means for our future. Scientists have long recognized the threats posed by global warming, but they must now consider that the natural behaviour of climate is perhaps a greater threat than we imagined. And the fact that changes in climate can happen much more quickly than we had originally thought - perhaps in the course of a human lifetime - makes it clear that science has a lot of questions to answer in this area. What are the mechanisms for triggering significant climate change? In what ways should we expect this change to manifest itself? When will it likely happen?Climate Crash seeks to answer these questions, breaking the story of rapid climate change to a general public that is already intensely curious about what science has to say on the topic.
