About this book

Since the first edition of this highly acclaimed Atlas was published in 2006 (it won the ‘Planeta Environment Book of the Year’), climate change has climbed even further up the global agenda.

This new edition features:

- New coverage of the role played by the world’s oceans
- Estimates of the economic impact of climate change
- Updated maps and graphics wherever data is available

The Guardian
