About this book

Addresses the politics, health issues, and economics surrounding this crucial topic. Can humans live in a symbiotic relationship with the environment? Is the damage created too great to be repaired? If not, then where do we start? The answers begin with a critical look at the development of the crisis, learning from past mistakes, and analyzing potential resolutions. The answers begin here. An issue so pressing, the opinions of scientists and decision makers are in general agreement-the threat is real.

Addressing heat waves, animal extinction, and the rise of ocean levels, this reference work offers concise information regarding the imminent: warnings and alternative sources of energy for a safer, more economic future. A balanced, accessible, and timely assessment of the issues, Global Warming reviews the scientific debate surrounding the causes and consequences of this worldwide issue. It explains how climate change intersects with energy and other policy arenas, describes the international agreements that address climate change, describes policies in the United States and other countries aimed at reducing the threat, and explores the ways in which science and politics interact.
