Global warming : are we entering the greenhouse century? by Stephen Henry Schneider( Book )

33 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 2,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "world's leading expert" offers a prophetic look at a year in the greenhouse century when California smothers under smog, the low level of water in the Great Lakes and Mississippi River threaten commerce and New York City suffers heat waves so intense the hospitals are filled with victims
Climate change science and policy by Stephen Henry Schneider( )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 2,045 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many ways, this volume supersedes the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Many important developments too recent to be treated by the 2007 IPCC documents are covered here. This book considers not only the IPCC report, but also results of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change held in Bali in December 2007, as well as even more recent research data. Overall, Climate Change Science and Policy paints a direr picture of the effects of climate change than do the IPCC reports. It reveals that climate change has progressed faster than the IPCC reports anticipated and that the outlook for the future is bleaker than the IPCC reported. --from publisher description
Climate change policy : a survey by Stephen Henry Schneider( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and German and held by 2,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Questions surrounding the issue of climate change are evolving from "Is it happening?" to "What can be done about it?" The primary obstacles to addressing it at this point are not scientific but political and economic; nonetheless a quick resolution is unlikely. Ignorance and confusion surrounding the issue -- including a lack of understanding of climate science, its implications for the environment and society, and the range of policy options available -- contributes to the political morass over dealing with climate change in which we find ourselves. Climate Change Policy addresses that situation by bringing together a wide range of new writings from leading experts that examine the many dimensions of the topics most important in understanding climate change and policies to combat it. Chapters consider: climate science in historical perspective analysis of uncertainties in climate science and policy the economics of climate policy North-South and intergenerational equity issues the role of business and industry in climate solutions policy mechanisms including joint implementation, emissions trading, and the so-called clean development mechanism Regardless of the fate of the Kyoto Protocol, the issues raised in that debate will persist as new climate protection regimes emerge; this volume treats most of those topics. Tying the chapters together is a shared conclusion that climate change is a real and serious problem, and that we as a society have an obligation not merely to adapt to it but to mitigate it in whatever intelligent ways we can develop. Cost-effectiveness is not disdained, but neither is the imperative for valuing species threatened by rapid climate change"--Publisher description
Preparing for climate change by Michael D Mastrandrea( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even with aggressive efforts to reduce greenhouse gases, the scientific consensus predicts that the Earth's temperatures will continue to rise for decades. Climbing temperatures are already having serious consequences for vulnerable people and regions through droughts, extreme weather, and melting glaciers. The authors maintain that we must start adapting to climate change now by identifying the places and people most at risk and taking anticipatory action--from developing drought-resistant crops to building sea walls. Climate change is inevitable, but disaster is not. The author's proposal for reducing greenhouse-gas emissions while preparing for their effects offers our best hope
Wildlife responses to climate change : North American case studies by Stephen Henry Schneider( )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 1,826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Wildlife Responses to Climate Change is the culmination of a three-year project to research and study the impacts of global climate change on ecosystems and individual wildlife species in North America. In 1997, the National Wildlife Federation provided fellowships to eight outstanding graduate students to conduct research on global climate change, and engaged leading climate change experts Stephen H. Schneider and Terry L. Root to advise and guide the project. This book presents the results, with chapters describing groundbreaking original research by some of the brightest young scientists in America. The book presents case studies that examine: ways in which local and regional climate variables affect butterfly populations and habitat ranges how variations in ocean temperatures have affected intertidal marine species the potential effect of reduced snow cover on plants in the Rocky Mountains the potential effects of climate change on the distribution of vegetation in the United States how climate change may increase the susceptibility of ecosystems to invasions of non-native species the potential for environmental change to alter interactions between a variety of organisms in whitebark pine communities of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem Also included are two introductory chapters by Schneider and Root that discuss the rationale behind the project and offer an overview of climate change and its implications for wildlife.Each of the eight case studies provides important information about how biotic systems respond to climatic variables, and how a changing climate may affect biotic systems in the future. They also acknowledge the inherent complexities of problems likely to arise from changes in climate, and demonstrate the types of scientific questions that need to be explored in order to improve our understanding of how climate change and other human disturbances affect wildlife and ecosystems.Wildlife Responses to Climate Change is an important addition to the body of knowledge critical to scientists, resource managers, and policymakers in understanding and shaping solutions to problems caused by climate change. It provides a useful resource for students and scientists studying the effects of climate change on wildlife and will assist resource managers and other wildlife professionals to better understand factors affecting the species they are striving to conserve
Scientists debate Gaia : the next century by Chapman Conference on the Gaïa Hypothesis( )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 1,772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gaia hypothesis holds that the Earth's physical and biological processes are linked to form a complex, self-regulating system, and that life has affected this over time. This title examines both this theory, as well as other Gaian processes
Encyclopedia of climate and weather by Stephen Henry Schneider( Book )

Laboratory earth : the planetary gamble we can't afford to lose by Stephen Henry Schneider( Book )

33 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schneider traces our climatic history not only from the beginning and up to the twentieth century, but deep into the twenty-first as well. He depicts the next one hundred years as a potentially perilous period for climate and life - unless we citizens of Earth first recognize and then work to control the unintended global scale experiment we are foisting on ourselves and all other life on "Laboratory Earth." This "lab" is not built of glass, wires, and tubes, but of insects, soils, air, oceans, birds, trees, and people. While no honest scientist can claim to have clairvoyant vision into the twenty-first century, Schneider optimistically demonstrates that enough is already known to command our attention and to insure that the juggernaut of human impacts on Earth doesn't turn into a gamble we can't afford to lose
