Summary
This new edition of The Encyclopedia of Climate Change provides comprehensive coverage of global warming and climate change, including scientific descriptions and explanations of all factors, from carbon dioxide to sunspots, that might contribute to climate change. Previously published as the Encyclopedia of Global Warming in 2009, this new edition, now titled the Encyclopedia of Climate Change brings the conversation up-to-date with a full update of existing material and over 100 new entries. New content includes detailed information from the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference, Greenpeace Activists, the Politics of Global Warming, Environmental Politics, Negotiations on Greenhouse Gas Emissions and The Standing March, to name a few. This encyclopedia is designed to provide students at the high school and undergraduate levels with a convenient source of information on the fundamental science and sociopolitical issues, including the debates and controversies, surrounding climate change. The study of climate change involves not only scientists but also politicians, policy makers, businesses, government and nongovernment agencies, and the general public. A student attempting to understand both the environmental science and social issues and controversies will encounter not just scientific terms and concepts but political organizations, geographic areas, social concepts, persons, countries, organizations, and laws as well. -- Amazon.com
