Provides a systematic and in-depth treatment of links between two major themes of the twenty-first century: population growth and associated demographic trends such as aging, and climate change. 'A first-rate exercise in multi-disciplinary analysis, the book examines a host of associated issues such as fertility shifts, population ageing, agriculture, energy consumption fostering greenhouse-gas emissions, health patterns and environmental security, together with the many policy options they entail, especially institutional adaptations. It amounts to a timely exploration of the major challenges ahead.' Norman Myers, Nature
'Logically structured and well balanced, this clearly written and well-presented book is quantitative in approach and makes no concessions to the inexperienced. It will be most useful for honours option-level undergraduates on a range of courses in geography, environmental science, demography and economics, and particularly for research workers wishing to broaden their understanding of the complex interactions between climate and human society.' Holocene 'The team that put this book together has done a good job. The concepts of climate change, demography and economics are expressed with clarity. The integration of natural-science and social-science perspectives is achieved with great success.' The Times Higher Education Supplement '! an excellent well-researched and well written book that surveys the status of the art in climate change, demography and on environment economics !'.
