Nevertheless, climate justice needs to be based on solid scientific findings, and we are proud to play a strong part in publishing some of the best climate science in our earth and environmental science portfolio. The Earth Day comes under the theme of ‘Climate Action’ – another signal to the world just how important that topic is. Adapting to Climate Change in Europe: Exploring Sustainable Pathways - From Local Measures to Wider Policies is a scientific synthesis of a four-year project on adaptation activities in combines scientific assessments with real-world case descriptions to present specific tools and methods. I strongly recommend A Cultural History of Climate It is particularly strong on explaining the dramatic cultural and social changes that climate variations have had on humanity over the last thousands of years, and discussing the archival and physical evidence in a very compelling way."

Q&A 1 IS THE CLIMATE WARMING?. Yes. Earth’s average surface air temperature has increased by about 1 °C ( °F) since , with over half of the increase occurring since the mids .A wide range of other observations (such as reduced Arctic sea ice extent and increased ocean heat content) and indications from the natural world (such as poleward shifts of temperature-sensitive. After analyzing the variations of climate data over recent decades, the authors consider the different effects of climate change on air pollution and health. As stressed by the IPCC, “pollen, smoke and ozone levels are likely to increase in a warming world, affecting the health of residents of major cities. It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. This book describes historical climate variations and changes and does a great job of showing the complexities involved in determining whether the climate is changing, what things affect changes and to some degree what is likely to happen going forward. It is truly a complex issue without a lot of clarity about what should be done/5(3).
Even in the UK the climate differs from one part of the country to another. The west tends to be cooler and wetter than the east, the north cooler than the south. Temperatures decrease with altitude so the tops of hills and mountains such as the highlands of Scotland experience more snow in winter, and the snow tends to stay for longer than at. In this internationally acclaimed book, Emeritus Professor Hubert Lamb examines what we know about climate, how the past record of climate can be reconstructed, the causes of climatic variation, and its impact on human affairs now and in the historical and prehistoric s: Climate Change and Cultural Dynamics explores the cause and effect relationship between climatic change and cultural transformations across the mid-Holocene (c.
