Warren M. Washington, Senior Scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, was among the first scientists to pioneer the development of climate models that are used... More > for evaluation of humankind’s impact on the global environment. His modeling work has helped understand climate change including global warming. Over the last 30 years, he has had Presidential Appointments under the Carter, Reagan, Clinton, and G.W. Bush administrations and he has served on many science committees and the including National Science Board, which he chaired from 2002 to 2006. He is a former President of the American Meteorological Society and a member of both the National Academy of Engineering and the American Philosophical Society. This autobiography provides information about how he became a scientist and his insights into science policy. Throughout the book, footnotes and internet web sites are used were more information is provided.< Less

The intelligentsia would have you believe that the debate over global warming is over. The author believes the debate never actually took place. As a Christian, the author also believes it... More > behooves mankind to ask, "What does the Bible say about this subject?" It turns out that the Bible has quite a lot to say: (1) God created ... and (2) God controls ... the heavens, the earth, and all life in it. (3) God also controls the wind and the rain -- that is, He controls weather and climate systems. In addition to presenting the details of the Bible teaching, discussions cover process control systems, computer modelling, and the composition and properties of air, as they apply to the global warming debate. Following background discussions, this book presents the author's views and recommendations.< Less

Global Climate Change: Summaries of the 2006-2007 Scientific Literature By J. Emil Morhardt
Paperback: $24.92
Ships in 3-5 business days
Global climate change is suddenly a regular topic in the evening news, thanks partly to the success of Al Gore's film, "An Inconvienent Truth" and partly because of the latest round of... More > summary reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, both of which occurred while this book was being written. Behind this news is a rising tide of new scientific information about global warming and its effects derived from ice cores in polar regions, sediment cores elsewhere, global climate computer models, and a virtual wave of ecological studies. This book is a series of summaries of some 200 of the most important scientific papers published on these subjects in 2006 and 2007. Our intent is to capture the full scientific significance of this literature in brief journalistic summaries accessable to the lay reader. They can be read in any order, and the format invites browsing for top-ics of particular current interest.< Less
Improving Living Conditions for Rural-Low Income Housing - Self Build With Earth in Composite Climate of NW Region of India By Atishay Jain
Paperback: $89.99

Housing is a very important sector having enormous potential for saving energy and carbon emissions. With 32% of the people below the international poverty line and 70% of the people below a wage of... More > 2$ per day, there is an enormous lack of sound housing in India. Practices in recent years is seeing a huge shift from vernacular to the use of modern materials argued on basis of better durability and better indoor performance compared to natural materials. This research investigates the application of various natural materials, specifically earth within rural housing. Theoretical and analytical work has been carried out to improve living conditions in current built form by using passive design strategies, utilizing various building simulation tools and knowledge from traditional practices. Benefits of using environmental friendly natural materials to that of conventional ones has also been documented.< Less
Don't Sell Your Coat: Surprising Truths About Climate Change By Harold Ambler
eBook (ePub): $9.37

Global warming is a household phrase these days, and it has led to a situation in which far too many educated people believe that mankind is hastening the destruction of the world through industry... More > and civilization. But where is the evidence to support these claims? In this impossible-to-put-down book Harold Ambler presents the history of climate in ways that are accessible to the average Joe or Jill and which make it clear that in terms of temperature, weather, and climate we have been here before. Without compromising on scientific detail, Ambler spends each chapter focusing on a different facet of climate science including sunspots, tradewinds, computer modeling, and data collection. He also deftly connects political stakeholders in the global warming arena to various distortions of the science. This distillation of information gives the reader the ability to decide whether global warming is a tangible threat or a convenient propaganda tool.< Less

This study investigated potential road closure travel disruption due to climate change in two Portland watersheds. We used multiple models to develop an impact assessment method. Runoff was... More > validated for 1988-2006 and used to estimate flood probability for 2020-2049. We surveyed streams at five crossings and found four bridges and roadways below the 100-year flood elevation, leading to frequent floods. Floods will become more frequent under some climate change scenarios. Vehicle miles traveled were not significantly affected by road closure, but vehicle-hours delay increased. Cost analysis is very sensitive to human fatalities or injuries and fairly insensitive to delays. This study presents a comprehensive classification of flood costs, identifies preventative measures, and makes recommendations. Results demonstrate the benefit of integrating top-down and bottom-up approaches in climate change impact assessment, and the need for spatially explicit modeling and participatory planning in flood management.< Less
