Reviews

 "Pollution and Global warming" by Dr. Reddy is a thoughtful overview of pollution in general and global warming in particular. It provides a useful history of the world's efforts to meet the important challenges of global warming as well as the science underlying the issues. It is a good reference for students and the public looking for an introduction to these challenges". "The book also simplifies the long and complex IPCC Working Group reports for an average reader. The book starts with simple scientific concepts and finally deals with mitigation and adaptation aspects, besides filling the void of a simple yet comprehensive exposition of the multi-dimensions of climate change".
