Summary
In the last half of the 20th century, scientists began understanding that industrialization and the effects of explosive population growth were affecting the fundamental structure and composition of earth's atmosphere. Man's ever-increasing thirst for energy, quenched by the burning of fossil fuels, has dramatically increased greenhouse gases in the lower atmosphere. This 2-disc set examines and explains this phenomenon, and looks into the future where other, more deadly impacts are predicted to follow. In the first decade of the 21st century, we find ourselves at the precipice of a dangerous, rising storm
