What to Do About Co

Synopsis
The term ‘greenhouse effect’ is becoming commonplace. It concerns the global problem of increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. This increase, it is predicted, will produce a warming of the earth’s atmosphere - the ‘greenhouse effect’. In addition, altered rainfall patterns could profoundly affect the world’s agriculture, and the global warming could cause a partial melting of the polar ice, raising the level of the sea by several metres. Looks at a diversity of research projects, from experiments with plants growing in artificially increased CO atmosphere to studies of ‘ancient air’ trapped in antarctic ice. Presents the views of leading scientists in the field.*
