Sect. 1. Our perceptions of climate -- Sect. 2. The climate system -- Sect. 3. Impacts of varying climate -- Sect. 4. Climate for a better society -- Sect. 5. The century ahead. "In Climate: Into the 21st Century, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) draws on an unrivalled selection of leading experts to provide a balance and global coverage of climate issues. It identifies some of the most arresting examples of climate events, their impact on people's lives, and how we can face the future challenges of climate change. Lavishly illustrated with over 400 colour images and written in an accessible and engaging style, this book will be attractive to a general audience interested in climate issues. It will also be valuable as a teaching resource for students in schools and universities."--Jacket.
