Summary: An exciting account of revolutionary new discoveries for understanding the earth's climate, and their implications for future scientific research and global environmental policy.
"Lost! Crawling on my hands and knees through the howling snowstorm, I didn't have time to be scared. But the thought did cross my mind that this might be my last expedition to Antarctica. I couldn't see a thing in the whiteout conditions of the blizzard; all I could do was foll
