The Fate of Greenland: Lessons from Abrupt Climate Change
"This is the best accounting of abrupt climate change available--best because the science is on-target and nuanced and the storytelling is superb." --Peter Kareiva, Chief Scientist and Vice President, The Nature Conservancy "While abrupt changes in the Earth's climate system occur with some frequency, the drivers of these dramatic events are poorly understood. Nowhere are such occurrences more prominent than in Greenland, where several abrupt changes have occurred during the period since the arrival of Norse settlers in the 10th century. In this accessible, illuminating, and richly illustrated book, several prominent climate scientists focus on the case of Greenland to explore the causes and consequences of rapid climate change events." --Oran R. Young, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, University of California at Santa Barbara "This book captures a unique view behind the scenes at a special time in climate science. It is an important work for several reasons: it connects past and potential future climate shifts that have large societal impacts to the mechanics of how the climate system works, and provides a glimpse of the personal detective work the authors have each engaged in as they and others have constructed our present understanding. It also captures well-informed views of how climate changes have worked in the recent past from the perspectives of scientists who have been at the forefront of unraveling aspects of this system. The Fate of Greenland is an excellent reference for establishing a working view of the planet on climate and glacial timescales. This is the right book, with the right tone, to bring this subject to a general audience." --Mark Fahnestock, Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space, University of New HampshirePub-quiz enthusiasts may well know what I did not: that the late Gary Comer, the seriously wealthy founder of the Lands End clothing company, was also an excellent photographer and discerning funder of climate-change research, especially in Greenland. This very handsome book presents almost 80 photographs of Greenland s glaciers and mountains with many of the best shots taken by Comer himself along with detailed, well-written accounts of the scientific insights associated with the field trips that Comer supported. It is both a memorial to Comer and a long, thoughtful essay on the character and causes of sudden climate change. .... This book teaches us a lot about how to do science and how to investigate difficult problems about the causes of environmental change. It shows that abrupt climate changes really have happened and puts forward likely mechanisms. It tells us a great deal about the wonders of Greenland and how important the country is as a window on to the recent glaciations. And it makes the whole idea of sudden, grave climate shocks arising from greenhouse emissions seem terribly plausible, even if it does not predict any particular shocks. It is not a story about lands end, but it is a very fine tribute to Comer. --Steve Yearley, Times Higher Education
