In the Eye of the Storm: The Autobiograthy of Sir John Houghton

Front Cover
Lion Books, Oct 18, 2013 - Biography & Autobiography - 304 pages

Sir John Houghton's life chronicles the history of climate science. Discovering in the course of his study of the weather that climate change is a reality and does threaten the future of the planet, Houghton found out something else. Not all scientists were prepared to tell the truth. When truth is inconvenient, even threatening to certain interests, then those interests will go to great lengths to challenge it.

   He says 'The warning is now urgent. The science is now robust, time is moving on, and humankind is responding far too slowly. God has granted us stewardship of this planet . It is a creation full of wonder and we must do everything in our power to keep it so.'

   'The warning has always been there, but opposing forces have prevented us from hearing it.' Sir John Houghton is still battling. This book is part of that battle.
