July eBook of the Month: Climate Change: Turning up the Heat

Posted on: Jun 30, 2006 @ 11:14:00 am

Is climate change really happening and does it matter? The answer from the scientific community is a resounding yes, yet debates about the reality of climate change and what measures to take are slowing our response.
In NetLibrary*s July eBook of the Month, leading climate researcher Barrie Pittock argues that we need to act urgently to avoid increasingly severe climate change. Climate Change: Turning up the Heat looks at the controversy around global warming and other predicted changes, examining the scientific basis of the changes observed to date, how they relate to natural variations and why the evidence points to larger changes later this
century. The effect of these changes on our natural systems and our lifestyles will be considerable and could include wild weather, shifts in global ocean circulation, decreases in crop yields and sea-level rises.
During month of July, NetLibrary and CSIRO Publishing make the eBook of the Month freely available, although it has not yet been received and added to the UCF collection.
