The First Edition of the Encyclopedia of Global Warming and Climate Change provided a multi-authored, academic yet non-technical resource for students and teachers to understand the importance of global warming, to appreciate the effects of human activity and greenhouse gases around the world, and to learn the history of climate change and the research enterprise examining it. This edition was well received, with notable reviews. Since its publication, the debate over the advent of global warming at least partially brought on by human enterprise has continued to ebb and flow, depending literally on the weather, politics, and media coverage of climate summits and debates. Advances in research also change the discourse as new data is collected and new scientific projects continue to explore and explain global warming and climate change. Thus, a new, Second Edition updates more than half of the original entries and adds new perspectives and content to keep students and researchers up-to-date in a field that has proven provocatively lively.

Global Warming Is One Of The Most Serious Threats That The Planet Earth And Its Inhabitants May Ever Face. The Earth S Climate Has Changed Throughout The Earth S History From Glacial Periods When Ice Covered Significant Portions Of The Earth To Interglacial Periods When Ice Either Retreated To Poles Or Melted Entirely. Since The Advent Of Industrial Revolution , Man-Made Activities Have Added Significant Quantities Of Greenhouse Gases To The Atmosphere. Burning Of Fossil Fuels On A Massive Scale Is Releasing Huge Amount Of Carbon Dioxide Which Is One Of The Major Gases Causing Global Warming; Other Gases Include Methane, Nitrous Oxide, Hydrofluorocarbons And Sulphur Hexafluoride.The Un S Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change Emphasizes That The Warming Of The Climate System Is Unequivocal And That It Is Happening Because Of Unsustainable Human Activities. The Report Also States That Average Temperature Of Earth Will Rise Around 3°C In This Century If Greenhouse Gas Emissions Continue To Rise At Current Pace. This Will Have Adverse Impacts On Agricultural Production, Food Security And Availability Of Fresh Water. The Climate Changes Anticipated Due To Global Warming Will Lead To Intensification Of Tropical Cyclones, Irregular Rainfall Patterns And Frequent Droughts And Floods.The Book Examines In Detail A Variety Of Topics Ranging From The History Of Global Warming To The Current Global Trends. It Focuses On The Controversy Regarding The Main Causes Of Global Warming, The Role Of Un On Climate Change, And Specific Problems Of India In This Regard. It Also Studies Its Overall Projected Impacts, Sectorwise Impacts On Different Regions, The Importance Of The Himalayan Glacial System And The Effect Of Present Climatic Conditions On Himalayan Glaciers, Vast Coastal Areas And Numerous Islands. The Latest Initiatives And Measures Taken To Reverse The Dangerous Process Of Global Warming Form An Integral Part Of The Book.The Book Will Be Highly Useful To The Government Executives, Policymakers And Ngos Concerned With Global Warming Problems. It Will Also Be Useful To The Students, Teachers And Researchers In The Field Of Environment. Common Readers Will Also Find It Interesting And Informative.

Environmentalists Across The World Have Opined That The Unprecedented Ferocity Of Nature Be It The Catastrophic Floods And Rains In Orissa And Mozambique Or The Devastating Drought And Famine In Africa And Mongolia Is Connected To Global Warming, Which Is Primarily A Human- Induced Phenomenon Caused By The Increasing Use Of Fuels To Run Our Economies. Glaciers Thinning In Antarctica And Receding Of Himalayan Glaciers Are Being Considered As Alarm Bells For The Entire World. Recently, Scientists Have Predicted That If Global Warming Goes On, Nothing Can Prevent Large Chunks Of Earth'S Surface Coastal Bangladesh, Maldives, Alpine Meadows In The Rocky Mountains And Some Barrier Lands From Being Swept Away In The Forseeable Future. It Has Been Aptly Observed By David King, Uk Government S Chief Scientific Adviser, Climate Change Poses A Bigger Threat To The Planet Than Terrorism. The World Not Only Needs To Take A Tough Stand Against Any Further Investments That Support And Prolong Our Dependence On Fossil Fuels, But Also To Make Deep Cuts In The Carbon Emissions If Humanity Is To Survive. Realising The Urgent Need For Arresting The Trend; For Developing Awareness In The Readers About The Preservation Of Biodiversity And Its Significance For Life, Sustainability And Equity; And For Warning Against The Consequences Of Environmental Exploitation As Well, The Present Volume Has Been Compiled. An Attempt Has Been Made Here To Study Not Only The General Causes And Effects Of Global Warming But Also To Highlight Its Effect On Particular Regions. Kyoto Protocol An International Law, Aiming To Reduce Greenhouse Gases Emissions Has Been Analytically Studied And Remedial Measures Have Also Been Suggested In This Volume.The Book Would Be Highly Useful For Students And Researchers Of Environment. It Would Be Useful To Government Executives And Ngos Concerned With Environment And Pollution Problems. Since The Laymen Are Deeply Interested In Clean Environment, The Book Would Be Of Great Interest To Them.

Encyclopedia of the Anthropocene presents a currency-based, global synthesis cataloguing the impact of humanity’s global ecological footprint. Covering a multitude of aspects related to Climate Change, Biodiversity, Contaminants, Geological, Energy and Ethics, leading scientists provide foundational essays that enable researchers to define and scrutinize information, ideas, relationships, meanings and ideas within the Anthropocene concept. Questions widely debated among scientists, humanists, conservationists, politicians and others are included, providing discussion on when the Anthropocene began, what to call it, whether it should be considered an official geological epoch, whether it can be contained in time, and how it will affect future generations. Although the idea that humanity has driven the planet into a new geological epoch has been around since the dawn of the 20th century, the term ‘Anthropocene’ was only first used by ecologist Eugene Stoermer in the 1980s, and hence popularized in its current meaning by atmospheric chemist Paul Crutzen in 2000. Presents comprehensive and systematic coverage of topics related to the Anthropocene, with a focus on the Geosciences and Environmental science Includes point-counterpoint articles debating key aspects of the Anthropocene, giving users an even-handed navigation of this complex area Provides historic, seminal papers and essays from leading scientists and philosophers who demonstrate changes in the Anthropocene concept over time
