Abrupt climate change from Land's End

15.06.2011

Introduction

Genomics Forum Director, Steve Yearley reviews `The Fate of Greenland: Lessons from Abrupt Climate Change' for The Times Higher Education Magazine.

Story

"Pub-quiz enthusiasts may well know what I did not:" writes Steve Yearley "that the late Gary Comer, the seriously wealthy founder of the Lands' End clothing company, was also an excellent photographer and discerning funder of climate-change research, especially in Greenland. This very handsome book presents almost 80 photographs of Greenland's glaciers and mountains - with many of the best shots taken by Comer himself - along with detailed, well-written accounts of the scientific insights associated with the field trips that Comer supported. It is both a memorial to Comer and a long, thoughtful essay on the character and causes of sudden climate change."
