Climate Change

By Melanie Jarman  

Paperback $19.95

This engaging guide outlines key issues in the major challenge facing national governments today–how to deal with climate change. With doom-laden forecasts of our future in the next decade, the issue’s importance cannot be over-estimated. Jarman shows how countries are beginning to adapt and what other countries must do to catch up.

Climate change will affect millions of lives, particularly in the poorest countries. Yet many governments are reluctant to commit to tackling the problem, prevented by political tensions and economic concerns. This guide is useful in understanding a topic that will massively impact our lives, charting the current progress of the South and seeking new solutions to this global problem.
