"Climate change receives a lot of attention because it is more than just a scientific issue; it also affects economics, sociology, politics, and standards of living. This book addresses current issues surrounding climate change. With a focus on various aspects of local, national, and international management issues, the text closely analyzes the cause-and-effect relationships that impact the environment worldwide on daily, annual, and longer time scales. In addition, it examines the evolution of international cooperation and the spectrum of political views. The author also presents feasible scientific solutions and looks at advances in current research and technology, including weather prediction."-- Provided by publisher
