Summary, etc.:
The author points out that core questions about the way the climate is responding to our influence and what the impacts will be remain largely unanswered. He provides insights and perspective free from political agendas, dispels popular myths, and unveils little-known truths. He points out that the models we use to predict the future aren't able to accurately describe the climate of the past, suggesting they are deeply flawed.
