Climate Knowledge

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


When describing his book A Vast Machine. Computer Models, Climate Data,and the Politics of Global Warming, Paul N. Edwards states «This book is a history of how scientists learned to understand the atmosphere, measure it, trace its past, and model its future». While global warming skeptics maintain that our knowledge on climate change is nothing but simulation and model predictions, the author traces the history of meteorology and climatology arguing that over the years the scientific case for global warming is in fact based on a stable and reliable infrastructure of global knowledge.
