Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 052156431X, Hardcover)This comprehensive volume provides a roadmap for disentangling the sometimes divisive public debate about the consequences of climate change. It reviews what is known, unknown, uncertain and controversial about the potential impacts of climate change. The conclusions of the report include that some regions, especially in the tropics and subtropics, may suffer significant adverse consequences for food security, even though the effects of climate change on global food production may prove small to moderate; there could be an increase in a wide range of human diseases, including mortality; some countries will face threats to sustainable development from losses of human habitat; and although technological advances have increased the range of adaptation and mitigation options, they are not currently available in all regions of the world. This comprehensive volume will be of great value to decision-makers and the scientific community concerned with the impacts of climate change and society's response. Students across a broad range of the environmental sciences will find this to be the most comprehensive and up-to-date information available on these topics.
