About this book

Although there is wide public interest in climate change, most of the latest information is available only in technical reports. This ground-breaking text makes crucial information about climate change widely available to teachers, students, political leaders, and citizens. Describing the implications of climate change in Europe, the book presents the latest most reliable information from IPCC reports in a readable and accessible form. It covers not only the expected impacts of climate change in Europe, but also the actions that society can take to adapt to it.

Written for a wide, non-specialist audience in non-mathematical form, this title translates IPCC data into practical consequences for the European environment. It looks at a wide variety of issues - agriculture, fisheries, natural habitats, water supply, human health, and more. It provides European environmental managers, planners and scientists with clear information on which to base decisions on funding, policy, and research. It can be used as a reader or even main text for European courses on climate change.
