Forests forever : their ecology, restoration, and protection by John J Berger( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An expanded and revised version of Berger's best-selling Understanding Forests, this book offers a clear and readable survey of forest history and management. Berger draws upon diverse sources in law, ecology, economics, politics, and anthropology to argue that ecology, rather than the marketplace, should be the driving force behind forest management. Historical case studies of forests worldwide support this contention, as does the history of governments' forest policy. Keeping pace with today's issues, Berger critically evaluates government policy over the last seven years, contrasting the destructive policies of the Bush Administration with model programs instituted by the Canadian Boreal Initiative and others. Ultimately, he offers us the guiding principles of sustainable forestry as an answer to the ever-increasing demand for wood products."--NHBS Environment Bookstore

Climate peril : the intelligent reader's guide to understanding the climate crisis by John J Berger( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an easily accessible work of enormous scope and depth, John J. Berger vividly evokes the looming hazards of a warmer world. Based on the latest climate science, Climate Peril reveals that the impacts of climate change on our health, economy, and environment are far worse--and more imminent--than many realize. The book identifies the obstacles to climate protection and shows why steep and unprecedented--yet affordable--cuts in greenhouse gases are needed now to avert a global climate catastrophe. Climate Peril portrays the radically altered world we will create in 2100 A.D. if greenhouse gas emissions are not reduced and documents the rapid and unnatural climate change already taking place. The book explores all major consequences of climate change, especially its astonishing impacts on the economy, human health, other species, and the oceans. Among other awesome risks, Climate Peril describes the billions of tons of carbon lurking in ocean seabeds and thawing permafrost and the global danger of crossing an invisible threshold beyond which catastrophic climate changes become inevitable. While its conclusions are alarming, Climate Peril is above all a realistic and authoritative book that you can use to better understand how climate change may affect you and your family. Climate Peril is the second of a three book series. Volume 1, Climate Myths, focused on the political campaign waged against climate science, and volume 3, Climate Solutions (forthcoming), shows how to create a climate-safe world by radically transforming global energy, transportation, and land use practices. Early comments: A brilliant book, and one that might just change the world. By far the best overview of climate science and its implications for our planet that I've ever read. - Tim Flannery, Chief Councilor, Australian Climate Council, and Author, The Weather Makers * I applaud Climate Peril for showing so clearly that climatic disruption is the consuming issue of our time and our response in the next few years will determine the fate of this civilization. - George M. Woodwell, Founder, Director Emeritus, and Senior Scientist, Woods Hole Research Center * Climate Peril is an excellent primer on the causes and effects of climate change, which, as John Berger notes, imperils our very existence and that of all natural systems on which we depend. - Lester R. Brown, President, Earth Policy Institute and Author of Full Planet, Empty Plates * Read Climate Peril and you will become well informed about what probably is the greatest threat ever faced by civilization. - Paul R. Ehrlich and Anne H. Ehrlich, from the Introduction to Climate Peril * Climate Peril lays the foundation for understanding the actions we must take to begin building a sustainable world for the future. Highly recommended! - Peter H. Raven, President Emeritus, Missouri Botanical Garden. About the Author: John J. Berger, Ph.D., writes about climate change from the perspective of an internationally respected energy and natural resources expert. Trained in ecology, Dr. Berger has served as a consultant to government, scientific, academic, and nonprofit organizations, including the U.S. Congress and the National Academy of Sciences
Climate myths : the campaign against climate science by John J Berger( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Climate Myths is both a primer on climate change and a definitive rebuttal of climate science denial. The book can thus be used to help educate students, teachers, and the general public about the controversy over climate change. Climate Myths puts the campaign against climate science in historical, political, and economic context and juxtaposes the claims of climate change deniers with the facts about climate change as revealed by authoritative climate science. Climate Myths dispels common misunderstandings about climate change and spotlights the companies, organizations, and individuals who have promoted climate myths in the course of their highly successful, multimillion dollar climate disinformation campaigns. Drawing on the principles and achievements of climate science, Climate Myths summarizes the imminent threat of rapid climate change, pointing readers toward needed action"--Back cover
