A collection of essays assess recent climate shifts, and the possibilities of human-induced climate alterations such as a long-term global warming derived from the enrichment of the atmospheric content of the 'greenhouse' gases. Contributors cover climatic variability and change, identifying climate sensitivity, the biophysical impacts of agriculture, fisheries, pastoralism, water resources, and energy resources, and social and economic impacts and adjustments.
Robert W. Kates, Jesse H. Ausubel, Mimi Berberian. Problems related to the effects of extreme climatic events - such as droughts, floods, or severe cold - are a continual burden to economies and societies in many parts of the world. Moreover, with growing evidence that increasing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases may be altering the Earth's climate, these problems seem likely to be exacerbated. Thus, it is incumbent upon the scientific community to develop and refine effective methods of assessing the impacts of climatic variation. ONTINUE READING.
