The Glacial World According to Wally
Palisades, NY, Self-Published, 1992. Broecker was a geoscientist whose 1975 paper "Climatic Change: Are We On the Brink of a Pronounced Global Warming?" popularized the term "global warming" and sounded an early, unheeded alarm. He also taught at Columbia University, where, unable to come up with textbooks that could keep up with the pace of climate change and climate science, he decided to create his own, in the form of comb-bound photocopies that could be updated as needed. This, "The Glacial World According to Wally," is the first draft of his first "Proto Book." More than 200 pages, plus appendices and bibliography. Owner name of fellow geochemist Dr. Bill Reeburgh. Corner crease to front acetate cover; rear acetate cover separating at top; near fine. [#035970] SOLD

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
