Life in Europe will indeed go on as the climate changes, but not inthe same way as before. The air will be warmer, winds will change,patterns of rainfall and snowfall will alter, and sea level islikely to rise. These phenomena are already being seen. Europe willin the future experience marked changes in vegetation cover,increased floods along rivers and coastlines as well as morefrequent droughts and forest fires, often leading to large societalcosts. The changes will be minor in some cases, profound in others,but in any case, pervasive.

This book uses the most up to date information issued bythe IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change),and informs readers about these effects, as well as showinghow Europe is contributing to attempts to slow the tempo of globalclimate change, and how it can adapt to the climate change thatseems unavoidable.

Life in Europe under Climate Change makes essentialinformation on climate impacts in Europe accessible to a broadaudience, including students, politicians, planners and members ofnon-governmental organizations.
