More > point, both for debate, and particularly for action - it is far from an end in itself.

This book seeks to help us utilise our thinking, understanding, contemplative and creative capacities that are associated with our consciousness to generate the most wise, positive and sustainable responses to the current state of humanity and the world.< Less

This book has a very brief explanation on how the climate changes based on changes of the position of the globe’s axis. Climate and minor axis position change can occur internally through... More > earthquakes, eruptions, excessive tidal waves and so on. Great axis position changes creating an ice age or tropical climate in Alaska, however, are created by celestial collisions.

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 AS METAPHOR & CATALYST By Judith Ford

More > change? This heuristic inquiry explores the development of the scientific, social, and cultural phenomena of climate change to better understand how culture, universalism, power, and history shaped the dominant worldview, which currently defines public debate and limits the range of solutions considered. Perhaps solutions to climate change lie not within the same narrow worldview from which it emerged, but within a contrary worldview that proposes to both address multiple crises and answer humankind’s universal quests for meaning, purpose, community, and nature. Perhaps the solution lies in resituating humankind's place firmly within the natural world.< Less
