This completely updated new edition of Weather Cycles: Real or Imaginary? explores in detail the unresolved debate on the existence of weather cycles. The book examines the competing arguments for observed effects being due to natural variability, solar activity and the Earth's orbital parameters. It provides a different perspective on one of the most difficult questions in the current global warming debate: namely, just how much of the recent temperature rise can be attributed to natural causes? Only by understanding how the climate can change of its own accord, and whether observed shifts are part of a set of predictable patterns, will it be possible to reach a reliable judgement on how much impact human activities are having. This book examines the complex analysis required to assess the evidence for cycles with a minimum of mathematics. This comprehensive and balanced account will appeal to the student and expert alike.

An amazing explanation.2015年4月10日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
If you want to be able to engage in informed debate about things like the global warming, you should study weather forecasting, physics, biology, oceanography, astrophysics, and weather cycles. This book is an amazing explanation of the latter. College level material. Highly recommended.

Read this book before reading Burroughs other book called "Climate Change in Prehistory" and you'll get a thorough feel for the impact of weather and evolution across the planet. You'll begin to realize that the impact of weather and disease (not mentioned in the book) form a very important dimension to the evolutionary process. Great read but dense in detail.
Great book for understanding chaotic climate2006年4月7日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This book does an amazing job telling the story on behalf of climate. While the statistical side of things are presented, the book is not number laden and over-factual. It is very conceptual and theory-driven. I recommend this book for anyone from students interested in weather, to those who call themselves weather experts.
