About this book

This book features 49 individual chapters by some of the world's leading climate scientists. Its five sections address climate change in five dimensions: ecological impacts, policy analysis, international considerations, United States considerations and mitigation options to reduce carbon emissions.

The editors have collated information from the IPCC report as well as results of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change held in Bali in December 2007. They reveal that climate change has progressed faster than the IPCC reports anticipated and that the outlook for the future is bleaker than first predicted.
