Climate change 2007 : mitigation of climate change : contribution of Working Group III to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change by Bert Metz( Book )

20 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third volume of the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provides an in-depth analysis of the costs and benefits of different approaches to mitigating and avoiding climate change. It includes a detailed assessment of costs and potentials of mitigation technologies and practices, implementation barriers, and policy options for the sectors energy supply, transport, building, industry, agriculture, forestry and waste management.--Publisher's description
Climate change 1995 : the science of climate change by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change( Book )

19 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate Change 1995 - The Science of Climate Change is the most comprehensive and up-to-date assessment available of current scientific understanding of human influences on past, present and future climate. The IPCC prepared its first comprehensive assessment report in 1990, with subsequent supplementary reports in 1992 and 1994. Climate Change 1995 is the first full sequel to the original assessment. The report includes an overview of the factors governing climate and climate change; quantification of the sources of the globally important greenhouse gasses and other pollutants arising from human activities, and a review of the chemical and biological processes governing their removal from the atmosphere; analyses of data on climates of the distant past, and an assessment of recent trends in climate during the industrial era, which has witnessed the ever-growing impact of human activities on the global environment; assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the various mathematical models of climate used by today's researchers for understanding past and present climate, and for calculating possible future climates; discussion of recent research aimed at the detection of a human influence on the climate of the last century; projections of possible future changes in global climate and sea-level, based on a range of scenarios of future emissions of pollutants from human activity; and a list of research and observational priorities needed to further improve scientific understanding in key areas. The IPCC reports represent the primary source of scientific and technical advice for the implementation of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. This assessment therefore forms the standard scientific reference for all those concerned with climate change and its consequences, including policy makers in governments and industry worldwide, and researchers and senior-level students in environmental science, meteorology, climatology, biology, ecology and atmospheric chemistry

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Policies to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases also have impacts on other policy goals, especially health. In some cases, these ancillary effects may be more significant than the direct greenhouse gas reduction impacts. While these relationships are generally recognised, analysis of climate policies does not systematically include them in policy design and selection. In March 2000, a workshop gathered leading edge analysts on this topic from around the world. These proceedings include analytic frameworks for ancillary effects, empirical results on the type and nature of ancillary effects, and discussion on the role of ancillary effects analysis in improved policy processes. These proceedings are a valuable reference for anyone seeking to develop integrated policies to meet a range of policy objectives simultaneously

Climate change : significance for agriculture and forestry : systems approaches arising from an IPCC meeting by David H White( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Societies throughout the world depend on food, fiber and forest products. Continuity and security of agricultural and forest production are therefore of paramount importance. Predicted changes in climate could be expected to alter, perhaps significantly, the levels and relative agricultural and forestry production of different nations over the next few decades. Agriculture and forestry are also likely to influence the rate and magnitude of such change, as they can be both significant sources and sinks of a number of greenhouse gases. Adaptive management strategies therefore need to be formulated and implemented for these sectors, to enable them to both adapt to future environmental change, and to limit greenhouse gas emissions. This book arose from an international workshop held in Canberra, Australia, under the auspices of the former IPCC Working Group III - Agriculture, Forestry and Other Human Activities Sub-Group (AFOS). A number of leading speakers at the workshop were approached to encapsulate the concepts discussed and developed at this workshop. The resulting papers make up this volume. The book promotes a greater understanding of the major sources and sinks of greenhouse gases within intensive and extensive cropping and animal production systems, and of agroforestry. It highlights the need to adopt a holistic systems approach to monitoring and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and assessing impacts, and to integrate climate change-related goals and activities with other issues, such as biodiversity, desertification, and sustainable agriculture and forestry
Image politics of climate change : visualizations, imaginations, documentations by Birgit Schneider( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scientific research on climate change has given rise to a variety of images picturing climate change. These range from colorful expert graphics, model visualizations, photographs of extreme weather events like floods, droughts or melting ice, symbols like polar bears, to animated and interactive visualizations. Climate change graphics have not only increased knowledge about the subject, they have begun to influence popular awareness of global weather events. The status of climate pictures today is particularly crucial, as global climate change as a long-term process cannot be seen. When images
