The Climate Mandate
San Francisco, W.H. Freeman, (1979). An early treatise by a journalist (Roberts) and a scientist (Lansford) on the subject of how "the quality and character of human life over the coming decades will be determined largely by three closely related influences: climatic variation, food production, and population growth." Granted: written in a time when there were as many arguments for the world ending by ice as much as by fire, but also pointing out that "the temperature was starting to rise..." Issued simultaneously in softcover and hardcover, this is the hardcover issue and is inscribed by Roberts, in the year of publication. Upper corners and spine very slightly tapped; else fine, without dust jacket. [#036214] SOLD
