Book Review: A Vast Machine: Computer Models, Climate Data, and the Politics of Global Warming

Chen, Robert S.

For anyone interested in global warming or more generally in climate or weather issues, A Vast Machine by Paul Edwards is well worth a careful read. It provides an unusually broad and long-term view of the development of climate science and associated climate data, models, and information infrastructure, supplemented by useful figures and very detailed notes and references.
