Global Climate Change

Convergence of Disciplines

Arnold J. Bloom

Sinauer Associates is an imprint of Oxford University Press

Mark Twain's comment--everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it--no longer applies: human activities have altered the global climate, and governments are implementing policies to avoid more extreme perturbations. Global Climate Change examines the factors responsible for global climate change and the geophysical, biological, economic, legal, and cultural consequences of such changes. The book highlights the complexity of decision-making under uncertainty, contrasting the methods that various disciplines employ to evaluate past and future conditions.
