The Two Mile Time Machine (by Richard B. Alley)
The Two-Mile Time Machine is authored by Richard B Alley who is Evan Pugh Professor
of Geosciences at Penn State University in the United States. If you thought we were living in uncertain times of Climate Change now then read this as historical
abrupt changes were fast and furious. If you enjoyed the film The Day after Tomorrow then this book will provide the science behind the story and the film will not
seem so far fetched as you might have thought.
The Little Ice Age (by Brian M. Fagan)
