Human Impacts on Weather and Climate is a non-mathematical presentation of the basic physical concepts of how human activity may affect our weather and climate. This book assesses the current hypotheses and examines whether the impacts are measurable. Included are critical evaluations of the scientific status of weather modification by cloud seeding, human impacts on regional weather and climate, and human impacts on global climate, including the greenhouse gas hypothesis. Also included are discussions of the modern philosophy of science and its application to determining human impacts on weather and climate. Human Impacts on Weather and Climate will be valuable for undergraduate and graduate courses in meteorology and in earth and atmospheric science, as well as for policy makers and readers with an interest in how humans are affecting the atmosphere.
