Item Details

Though still hotly debated by some, global warming is now an accepted fact in the wider scientific community. The average temperature of the Earth is clearly getting warmer. As scientists work to develop accurate models to predict the full impact of global warming, researchers, policy makers and industry leaders are attempting to understand and agree on what can be done to minimize or even reverse the impact of human contributions to global climate change. Volumes in the new Confronting Global Warming series explore in detail the range of current and impending challenges the planet faces as a result of global warming. Climate change potentially affects all aspects of modern life, from weather and agriculture to health and politics. The series examines these issues from a variety of expert perspectives, highlights key future challenges, and addresses the pros and cons of potential solutions -- all in a clear, unbiased manner. Confronting Global Warming is the perfect resource for students needing up-to-date, authoritative information on what may be the most significant issue of our time.
