This is, for my money, the best single-source primer on the state of climate change. (New York Magazine) The essential primer on what will be the defining issue of our time, CLIMATE CHANGE: What Everyone Needs to KnowRG is a clear-eyed overview of the science, conflicts, and implications of our warming planet. Questions about climate change addressed in this guide include: DT How will climate change affect day-to-day life in the coming decades? DT What are the implications of owning coastal property in the age of climate change? DT Is retirement to South Florida (or the U.S. Southwest, or even Southern Europe) safe? DT What are the implications of the United States´ withdrawal from the Paris climate treaty? DT What does Donald Trump´s presidency mean for climate action in the United States and around the globe? DT Are efforts to combat climate change making a difference? As the global response to climate change continues to evolve, CLIMATE CHANGE: What Eve
Primate Change offers up a wide-ranging, polemical look at how and why the human body has changed since the agricultural revolution, how the way we live now is altering us inside and out, and what things we can do to turn back the clock.
In the new edition of Climate Change: A Very Short Introduction (previously titled Global Warming), Mark Maslin explores all of the key debates. Examining the most recent scientific research, he looks what climate change is, its impact on our planet, and why it´s such a complex problem to solve.
This is an invaluable textbook for any introductory survey course on the science and policy of climate change, for both non-science majors and introductory science students. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most recent science from the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports, and many illustrations include new data. The new edition also reflects advances in the political debate over climate change. Unique amongst textbooks on climate change, it combines an introduction to the science with an introduction to economic and policy issues, and is tightly focused on anthropogenic climate change. It contains the necessary quantitative depth for students to properly understand the science of climate change. It supports students in using algebra to understand simple equations and to solve end-of-chapter problems. Supplementary online resources include a complete set of PowerPoint figures for instructors, solutions to exercises, videos of the author´s lectures, and additional computer exercises.
THIS IS THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE AND CONSERVATIVE BOOK ON CLIMATE CHANGE IN PRINT. It contains all the Major Claims made by Proponents of Man-made Climate Change ... or Anthropogenic Global Warming. It contains all their major False Predictions on Climate and Oil for over a hundred years! It contains a refutation of the claim that 97% of scientists accept Climate Change. It contains their ZERO Debate Performance. It contains their false scientific claims about ´´Fossil Fuels´´ and Solar Energy and Electric Cars. It contains all the Natural Climate Change Causes. It covers the efffects of CO2 on the Climate, Ozone Holes, Cataclysmic events, Pollution, the benefits of higher CO2 and smoke, etc. IT covers the millions of people dying from Environmental Extremism and Policies. It contains Environmental Religionism and true Religion. IT IS A LIBRARY ON THIS ISSUE!
Mike Hulme provides a unique insider´s account of climate change and the diverse ways in which it is understood. He uses different standpoints from science, economics, faith, psychology, communication, sociology, politics and development to explain why we disagree about this important phenomenon.
The risks of global warming are pressing and potentially vast. There is an urgent need to rethink our response to the crisis. To meet that need, a small but increasingly influential group of scientists is exploring proposals for planned human intervention in the climate system, including a stratospheric veil against the sun, the cultivation of photosynthetic plankton, and fleets of unmanned ships seeding the clouds. These are the technologies of geoengineering and, as Oliver Morton argues in The Planet Remade, it would be as irresponsible to ignore them as it would be foolish to see them as a simple solution to the problem. Morton explores the history, politics, and cutting-edge science of geoengineering and weighs the promise and perils of these controversial strategies. He addresses the deep fear that comes with seeing humans as a force of nature, and asks what it might mean - and what it might require of us - to try to use that force for good.
From Africa to Asia and Latin America, the era of climate wars has begun. Extreme weather is breeding banditry, humanitarian crisis, and state failure. In Tropic of Chaos , investigative journalist Christian Parenti travels along the front lines of this gathering catastrophe- the belt of economically and politically battered postcolonial nations and war zones girding the planet´s midlatitudes. Here he finds failed states amid climatic disasters. But he also reveals the unsettling presence of Western military forces and explains how they see an opportunity in the crisis to prepare for open-ended global counterinsurgency. Parenti argues that this incipient ´´climate fascism´´- a political hardening of wealthy states- is bound to fail. The struggling states of the developing world cannot be allowed to collapse, as they will take other nations down as well. Instead, we must work to meet the challenge of climate-driven violence with a very different set of sustainable economic and development policies.
