Product description

Review

'Condenses key findings from the scientists and is packed with facts, graphs and maps explaining how climate change is affecting the planet.' Guardian 'This pioneering atlas will become an essential point of reference for anyone looking for a quick and accurate overview of this multidisciplinary subject.' John Ashton, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) 'This is a remarkable piece of work and extremely readable. What is most heartening about this book is not only the wealth of information it conveys but the powerful illustrations and graphics.' R K Pachauri, Chairman, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 'The Atlas of Climate Change is a valuable resource to help understand the core issues at a time when the dismissive statements of a few sceptics are still given disproportionate credibility and media attention.' Gwyn Griffiths, Morning Star 'This latest volume in Earthscan's Atlas series offers a wide-ranging yet readable approach to this complex topic.' Spore

Synopsis

Today's headlines and recent events reflect the seriousness of climate change. Heatwaves, droughts and flooding are driving people from their homes, destroying livelihoods and causing death among vulnerable populations. Rigorous in its science and insightful in its message, this atlas examines the possible impact of climate change on our ability to feed the world's people, avoid water shortages, conserve biodiversity, improve health, and preserve cities and cultural treasures. It also reviews historical contributions to greenhouse gas levels, progress in meeting Kyoto commitments and local efforts to meet the challenge of climate change. The atlas covers a wide range of topics, including warning signals, future scenarios, vulnerable populations, health impacts, renewable energy and emissions reduction. With more than 50 full colour maps and graphics, this is an essential resource for policy makers, environmentalists, students and everyone concerned with this pressing subject.
