BERNARD, Harold W., Jr.
The Greenhouse Effect
Cambridge, Ballinger, (1980). "Before the end of the next four decades [i.e., 2020] .... the climate of the earth may be warmer than at any time in the past thousand years." An examination of the history of global warming, the state of the problem, and the hopes and fears for the mid-21st century. Inscribed by the author in the month of publication: "To Kerry -- thanks for your help on The Greenhouse Effect." Likely inscribed to Kerry H. Cook, who is named second in Bernard's Acknowledgments. An early title on the subject, preceding Bill McKibben's The End of Nature -- widely considered the first book for a general audience on global warming -- by nearly a decade. A good association copy. Fine, without dust jacket, possibly as issued. [#034693] SOLD
