Earthmasters: The Dawn of the Age of Climate Engineering by Clive Hamilton - Yale, 2013. call number: 551.68 Ham
"This book goes to the heart of the unfolding reality of the twenty-first century: international efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions have all failed, and before the end of the century Earth is projected to be warmer than it has been for 15 million years. . .
