Global Climate Change contains both practical and theoretical aspects of global climate change from across geological periods. The book addresses holistic issues related to climate change and its contribution in triggering temperature increases with a multitude of impacts on natural processes. As a result, the book helps to identify the gaps between policies that have been put in place surrounding continuously increasing emissions. Challenges presented include habitability, biodiversity, natural resources and human health. Sections are organized into information on the past, present and future of climate change to lead to a greater understanding and more effective solutions.
Placing an emphasis on recent climate change research, this book helps bring researchers in climate science, environmental science, and sustainability up-to-date on the ever-evolving science of climate change.
