Climate Change and Agriculture in the United States: Effects and Adaptation By U.S. Department of Agriculture
Paperback: $23.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
Increases of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), rising temperatures, and altered precipitation patterns will affect agricultural productivity. Increases in temperature coupled with more variable... More > precipitation will reduce productivity of crops, and these effects will outweigh the benefits of increasing carbon dioxide. Effects will vary among annual and perennial crops, and regions of the United States; however, all production systems will be affected to some degree by climate change. Agricultural systems depend upon reliable water sources, and the pattern and potential magnitude of precipitation changes is not well understood, thus adding considerable uncertainty to assessment efforts. Livestock production systems are vulnerable to temperature stresses. An animal’s ability to adjust its metabolic rate to cope with temperature extremes can lead to reduced productivity and in extreme cases death.< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
Climate change is causing temperatures to become warmer, the sea level to rise, and storms are becoming stronger and more frequent. Subsequently, it is important to ensure that society is able to... More > mitigate and adapt for hazards to become more resilient. The problem is that society has not made resiliency a top priority due to a lack of foresight. Current methods of mitigation and adaptation are inadequate and need to be modernized to create a level of resilience that can prevent the loss of life and property in the years to come.< Less
CLIMATE CHANGE AND BIODIVERSITY MANAGEMENT By Sabang Sajanikanta Mahavidyalaya, Lutunia, West Bengal.
Paperback: $10.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Assessing the impacts of climate change will be a vital task in developed as well as in developing countries because of many interdependent physical, biological and chemical processes are ongoing... More > in earth and human systems. These processes can be affected by change in climate, causing an effect on natural resources (water resources, forest products, etc.), on biodiversity, ecosystem services and on plants in general, some positive and on others negative effects, such as, altering biophysical relationship, shrinking of habitats, desertification and general shift in natural world. Warming directly affects rate of plant respiration, photosynthesis, and other biogeochemical processes. For instance, enhanced CO2 concentration can increase photosynthetic rate especially for plants growing under warm and dry condition such as C3 plants. Naturally, plants have their own mechanism to tolerate a certain level of increased temperature.< Less
Climate Change - Global Warming By Nicolae Sfetcu
eBook (ePub): $2.99

A brutal and catastrophic warming could put humanity in short-term risk, a climate hypothesis that was first presented as highly speculative and subject to more science fiction than a serious... More > prospective, before taking consistency by the scientists from the Rio Summit, and the difficulties of implementing the Kyoto Protocol. This possibility is beginning to be considered by the futurists, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), under the aegis of the UN, then a university report synthesis and evaluation that a large and abrupt changes may jeopardize all or part of humanity, biodiversity or societies and ecosystems to adapt capacities. The large press is gradually echoed, referring to the international climate negotiations "more difficult than on nuclear disarmament" and risking "the future of humanity". Tens of thousands of deaths are attributed to heat waves. Floods are expected to increase.< Less

More > the first in a series of multi-disciplinary workshops that investigated spatial design strategies through the studying of innovative, integrated approaches for climate adaptation along the Mississippi, Missouri and Illinois rivers in the Midwest. Initially focusing on the St. Louis Bi-state region, the first workshop outcomes were a broad-based set of proto-typological, multi-scaled planning scenarios worthy of more detailed study and intended to be transferable to other Midwest city regions.< Less

Climate of Doubt - Why Scientists Disagree About Climate Change By Iain Aitken
Paperback: $12.75
Prints in 3-5 business days
Climate change may be the biggest gamble in human history. The stakes current generations are being asked to place are astronomical and the pot, to be collected by future generations, may be life or... More > death existential. The scientific authorities are united in their conviction that there is an unfolding man-made climate change crisis and so only one bet makes sense: urgent global decarbonisation. But a relatively small group of so-called ‘denier’ scientists are deeply sceptical about the man-made climate change crisis idea and say that since global decarbonisation would have severe economic, humanitarian and environmental consequences a very different bet makes more sense: maintain a watching brief on climate change, adapting accordingly. The authorities and the ‘deniers’ cannot both be right – so where does the truth lie? The purpose of this book is to explore the deep uncertainties at the heart of the climate change debate, so helping non-experts understand why scientists disagree about climate change.< Less
