Providing an up-to-date synthesis of all knowledge relevant to the climate change issue, this book ranges from the basic science documenting the need for policy action to the technologies, economic instruments and political strategies that can be employed in response to climate change. Ethical and cultural issues constraining the societal response to climate change are also discussed. This book provides a handbook for those who want to understand and contribute to meeting this challenge. It covers a very wide range of disciplines - core biophysical sciences involved with climate change (geosciences, atmospheric sciences, ocean sciences, ecology/biology) as well as economics, political science, health sciences, institutions and governance, sociology, ethics and philosophy, and engineering. As such it will be invaluable for a wide range of researchers and professionals wanting a cutting-edge synthesis of climate change issues, and for advanced student courses on climate change.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"readable yet comprehensive view of the climate change issue..graphics are generally of high quality..Highly Recommended." - CHOICE
"This impressive work could well serve as the core text for a university course in contemporary climate issues, and should be featured by any library seeking to inform its patrons on the future of their world. It certainly provides a uniquely illuminating Baedeker for anyone seeking to explore the complexities of the climate change issue and the possibilities for navigating our planet and its passengers through them. One might even wistfully hope that it might find its way into the reading lists of the current aspirants to the White House, a depressing number of whom deny the very existence of the problems it addresses." - John S. Perry, Bulletin for the AMS, April 2012
