This guide represents a recent (1999) review of climate change. Throughout, the focus has essentially been on global climate change, although reference to regional scale climatic change has been made if and when necessary. On their own each chapter is a broadly self-contained discussion of a specific sub-issue of importance. Climate is the long-term statistical expression of short-term weather. Climate can be defined qualitatively as “expected weather” (Bradley, 1985), or quantitatively by statistical expressions such as central tendencies and variances.
