Covers exploration of cold regions, ice ages, influence of ice on climate and Holocene warming. Examines evidence for recent anthropogenic warming and impacts on ice sheets, sea ice, snow cover and permafrost. Discusses current and potential future impacts on human and other life on Earth, and notion that "tipping point" is imminent. Discusses mitigation strategies and places debate in economic and geopolitical context.
