    <P>Der Klimawandel bedroht in besonderer Weise Menschen in den Slums der Megastädte.

  • Wie eine Wissenschaft die Erde und sich erhitzt -by Jürgen Bellers; Markus Porsche-Ludwig

    Traugott Bautz 2012; US$ 12.41

    Wissenschaftliche Ergebnisse sind nicht nur Ergebnis reiner Vernunft, sondern auch Folge von binnenwissenschaftlichen Konkurrenz- und Reputationsprozessen sowie individuellen Profilierungsstrategien, durch die man in den Medien hervorstechen will. Und da diese am liebsten Negatives berichten, erfindet die Klimaforschung durch waghalsige Prognosen Katastrophen,... more...

  • Come Rain or Shineby Storm Dunlop

    Summersdale 2015; US$ 8.99

  • Climate Systemsby Julie Kerr Casper

    Infobase Publishing 2009; US$ 48.00

    Many scientists today refer to the phenomenon of 'global warming' as 'climate change' because they feel it is a better overall description of the situation.
