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

32 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 989 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
The primordial bond : exploring connections between man and nature through the humanities and sciences by Stephen Henry Schneider( Book )

Climate change science and policy by Armin Rosencranz( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 664 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( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and German and held by 631 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
Wildlife responses to climate change : North American case studies( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scientists debate Gaia : the next century by Chapman conference on the Gaïa hypothesis( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 424 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
Preparing for climate change by Michael D Mastrandrea( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 388 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

Climate and geo-sciences : a challenge for science and society in the 21st century by A Berger( Book )

9 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has been widely recognized recently that in order to make scientific progress on large and important problems (eg, carbon dioxide effects on climate, viability of various sites for nuclear waste disposal etc.), it is necessary to integrate knowledge from wide ranging sets of disciplines. This is certainly true in the climate sciences, for progress in understanding the cause of the ice ages or the effects of industrial pollution on the future climate or even the likelihood of severe climatic consequences in the aftermath of nuclear war. All require state-of -the -art input from many geoscience disci plines climatology, oceanography, meteorology, chemistry, ecology, glaciology, geology, astronomy, space technology, computer technology, mathematics etc. Major international meetings have called for interaction of such geo-science disciplines to solve real world problems. To move beyond the rhetorical level, the NATO Special Programme on Global Transport Mechanisms in the Geo-Sciences whose activities started in 1983, deci ded to organise his closing symposium on such a topic which focus on the relationship between climate and geo-sciences. This symposium was held at the end of May 1988 at the Universite Catholique de Louvain, Louvain-Ia-Neuve, Belgium. One hundred-and-thirty participants from the 16 NATO countries and a number of non-NATO countries assembled for the Symposium. Another feature was the attendance by special invitation of 16 pro mising young scientists who might well become leading scientists on climate and geo-sciences in their respective countries in the next century

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[E]xplore[s] the global human impact of climate change and its serious destabilizing effect on international politics. The film turns the distant concept of global warming into a concrete human problem with enormous worldwide consequences ... The film features a variety of leading scientists, relief workers, security consultants, and major political figures, including John Kerry and Newt Gingrich. Whether human-caused or a product of nature, the changing climate is already creating humanitarian disasters and will inevitably lead to worldwide political instability"--Container
