8vo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine; pp. xiv + 318; spine a little dulled, very good.
First edition. The result of a two day conference run in May 1952 by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, this volume collects papers by twenty two authorities on the causes and effects of climate change. That climate change is real is not denied, and the presence of extra carbon dioxide in the air is acknowledged.. However, the authors differ on how much responsibility can be apportioned to humanity.
