The Great Ice Age documents and explains the natural climatic and palaeoecologic changes that have occurred during the past . Exploring a wide range of records of climate change, the authors demonstrate the interconnectivity of the components of the Earths climate system, show how the evidence for such change is obtained, and explain some of the problems in collecting and dating proxy climate data.

The Great Ice Age is also our ag. The embryonic phase of this book began in the womb of an Open University Course Team preparing a new course entitled Earth and Life presented for the first time in 1997. The course examines the co-evolution of our planet and life upon it.

The Great Ice Age is also our age. The four and a half billion year evolution of the Earth and its biota culminated with the appearance of a life form capable of studying and manipulating environmental systems. This text was to be the last of five books, but by the time we had delivered our overlength second draft, realisation that the entire course was too long had dawned, and so 'The Great Ice Age' was unfortunately jettisoned.

Part 1 of The Great Ice Age documents and explains the natural climatic changes that have occurred during the past . million years

The Great Ice Age documents and explains the natural climatic and palaeoecologic changes that have occurred during the past 2.6 million years, outlining the emergence and global impact of our species during this period. Exploring a wide range of records of climate change, the authors demonstrate the interconnectivity of the components of the Earths climate system, show how the evidence for such change is obtained, and explain some of the problems in collecting and dating proxy climate data.One of the most dramatic aspects of humanity's rise is that it coincided with the beginnings of major environmental changes and a mass extinction that has the pace, and maybe magnitude, of those in the far-off past that stemmed from climate, geological and occasionally extraterrestrial events. This book reveals that anthropogenic effects on the world are not merely modern matters but date back perhaps a million years or more.
