  • Human Development Report 2007/2008by United Nations Development Programme

    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 39.00

    This year's Human Development Report explains why we have less than a decade to change course and start living within our global carbon budget, and how climate change will create long-run low human development traps, pushing vulnerable people into a downward spiral of deprivation. more...

  • Ethics and Global Environmental Policyby Paul G. Harris

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2011; US$ 40.00

    This collection of provocative essays re-evaluates the world's failed policy responses to climate change, in the process demonstrating how cosmopolitan ethics can inform global environmental governance. A cosmopolitan worldview points to climate-related policies that are less 'international' and more 'global'. From a cosmopolitan perspective, national... more...

  • Implementing Climate Change Measures in the EUby Merle Grobbel

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2008; US$ 79.99

    Which factors influence the implementation of climate change measures in the EU? Are there already any indications prior to directive/law approval of (national) implementation difficulties that could later emerge? What are prerequisites of successful implementation? How can we model implementation? Implementing Climate Change Measures in the EU provides... more...

  • Zivilisierung des Klimaregimesby

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2011; US$ 39.99

    Eine immer wieder auch vom Scheitern verfolgte Klimapolitik zeigt nicht nur die Handlungsgrenzen der Staatengemeinschaft auf. Auch die Strategie der ?konfliktiven Kooperation? mit den Staaten, wie sie von NGOs lange schon praktiziert wird, ist an Legitimations- und Glaubwürdigkeitsgrenzen gestoßen. In Reaktion darauf betreten neue, transnational vernetzte... more...

  • Der Klimawandelby Martin Voss

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2010; US$ 69.99

    Die sozialwissenschaftliche Forschung zu Klimaschutz (Mitigation) und Anpassung (Adaptation) an mögliche Folgen des Klimawandels befindet sich noch in ihren Anfängen. Grundlagenforschung ist ebenso erforderlich wie anwendungs- bzw. handlungsorientierte Forschung. Dieser Band vermittelt einen Eindruck von der Vielfalt der sozialwissenschaftlichen... more...

  • Alltagsbilder des Klimawandelsby Melanie Weber

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2009; US$ 49.99

    Betrachtet man die steigenden Kohlendioxid-Emissionen, so wird deutlich: Ein grundlegender Wandel hin zu einer nachhaltigen Gesellschaft mit einer Energiebilanz, die keine gefährlichen Folgen für das natürliche Klimasystem verursacht, steht noch aus. Eine Transformation der Energiesysteme hängt nicht allein von den technischen Möglichkeiten ab, sondern... more...

  • Climate Change Adaptation in Developed Nationsby James D. Ford; Lea Berrang-Ford

    Springer 2011; US$ 239.00

    It is now widely accepted that adaptation will be necessary if we are to manage the risks posed by climate change. What we know about adaptation, however, is limited. While there is a well established body of scholarship proposing assessment approaches and explaining concepts, few studies have examined if and how adaptation is taking place at a national... more...

  • Island Futuresby Godfrey Baldacchino; Daniel T. Niles

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    Many island societies now face the challenges of severe depopulation and loss of indigenous culture. In some cases, where the value of indigenous knowledge, nature and culture is widely recognized - as in the case of islands that are designated as, or have, Biosphere Reserves or World Heritage Sites - these challenges may be overcome. Even with such... more...

  • Introduction to Climate Modellingby Thomas Stocker

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    In this title, a three-tier approach is presented: fundamental dynamical concepts of climate processes, their mathematical formulation based on balance equations, and the necessary numerical techniques to solve these equations. This book showcases the global energy balance of the climate system and feedback processes that determine the climate sensitivity,... more...

  • The Future of the World's Climateby Ann Henderson-Sellers; Kendal McGuffie

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 140.00

    At a time of so much politicized debate over the phenomenon of global warming, the second edition of The Future of the World's Climate places the discussion in a broader geological, paleo-climatic, and astronomical context. This book is a resource based on reviews of current climate science and supported by sound, accurate data and projections made... more...
