What does climate change mean for New Zealand? Will we fry and starve, or bask and thrive? Using the latest evidence from the International Panel on Climate Change’s Fourth Assessment Report, Gareth Renowden puts climate change into its New Zealand context. He examines how the science suggests New Zealand’s climate will change, what current and future governments can do to address the problem, and how individuals and businesses can respond to the challenge.'Hot Topic' explains the science of global warming in a clear and easily understandable way. Renowden looks at New Zealand’s options for adaptation and mitigation in a scrupulously non-partisan manner.BackgroundGlobal warming is an issue that has driven a huge amount of media and political debate in the last year. Al Gore’s movie 'An Inconvenient Truth' and Tim Flannery’s book 'The Weather Makers' are just two of the more visible international signs that climate change is becoming a defining item on the political agenda. This debate will intensify over the coming year, as the IPCC publishes its Fourth Assessment Report – which concludes that global warming is here, and likely to be damaging and dangerous as it progresses. 'Hot Topic' is the first popular science book to put global warming into a New Zealand context, and will play a key role in defining the national debate on how to deal with the problem.

In this compilation of David Suzuki's latest thoughts and writings, the renowned scientist, author, and broadcaster explores the myriad environmental challenges the world faces and their interconnected causes. In doing so, Suzuki shows that understanding the causes—and recognizing that everything in nature, including us, is interconnected—is crucial to restoring hope for a better future. The solutions are there, he argues; we just need the will to act together to bring about change. Everything Under the Sun delves into such provocative topics as the difference between human hunters and other predators, the lessons we must learn from the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan and the subsequent meltdown of the nuclear reactors, and our dependence on the sun for all of our food and energy—indeed for our very lives. Suzuki also considers the many positive steps people are making today. And he doesn't shy away from controversial opinion, especially when it comes to taking on those who stand in the way of resolving serious issues like climate change. Underpinning it all is the recognition that we are blessed to live on a planet that gives us everything we require to live, under a sun that gives us the energy we need to produce food and transport and modern conveniences. But we must protect what we have if we want to survive and prosper.

Global warming is a major phenomenon that is negatively affecting Earth. But what most people don’t realize is that this effect is not limited within the planet’s atmosphere; it may also affect Earth’s journey through space. In Global Warming and Earth’s Evolution, author Graham Winston reveals that the bigger picture is bigger than Global Warming and Global Warming is only the tip of the iceberg of Earth’s own challenges. The book describes the real truths of Global Warming is mainly caused by man’s unnecessary destruction of natural resources earth depends on to be in a good condition to successfully complete its next evolution cycle. The book explains the importance of the cycles and what evolutionary changes occurred on earth. Many previous unexplained phenomena could be linked to earth’s evolutionary cycles. The extinction of the dinosaur, the birth of the Grand Canyon: why has no large object recently collided with the Moon when millions of craters exist on the Moon? Why has the impacts stopped and when will the impacts start happening again? These and other fascinating examples of unsolved phenomena will open the minds of many readers to this new dimension of thinking what happened on earth millions of years ago and whether earth will survive the next evolutionary cycle. Global Warming has caused a negative effect on earth natural defense mechanism earth depends on to survive the severe challenges when close to the core of the Milky Way Galaxy. About the Author Graham Winston’s professional experience spans over 20 years and involves solving complex problems. To achieve success in these business fields Winston solved many complex problems. The common skill applied across these fields was the development of innovative thinking. This later led to apply these same problem-solving techniques on Global Warming and Earth’s evolution cycles to understand the relationship between Global Warming and Earth’s own evolutionary journey as Earth travels across the Universe.

• Winner of the BC National Award for Non-Fiction • Nominated for the Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction and the 2011 Hilary Weston Writer's Trust Award. During Charlotte Gill’s 20 years working as a tree planter she encountered hundreds of clear-cuts, each one a collision site between human civilization and the natural world, a complicated landscape presenting geographic evidence of our appetites. Charged with sowing the new forest in these clear-cuts, tree planters are a tribe caught between the stumps and the virgin timber, between environmentalists and loggers. In Eating Dirt, Gill offers up a slice of tree-planting life in all of its soggy, gritty exuberance while questioning the ability of conifer plantations to replace original forests, which evolved over millennia into intricate, complex ecosystems. Among other topics, she also touches on the boom-and-bust history of logging and the versatility of wood, from which we have devised countless creations as diverse as textiles and airplane parts. She also eloquently evokes the wonder of trees, our slowest-growing “renewable” resource and joyously celebrates the priceless value of forests and the ancient, ever-changing relationship between humans and trees.

Global warming has become such a hot topic these days because of its relevance to greenhouse gases that some scientists feel are the cause for warming and may cause the polar ice caps to melt and flood coastal cities. These would be so catastrophic as to cause great economic and social hardship that would be insurmountable. Of course it is related to the production of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the burning of fossil fuels in automobiles and other industrial equipment. With sufficient data, however, it can be concluded that although the earth's surface and atmosphere does indeed have effects on our weather patterns, there is nothing consistent that points to repetitions of global warming over millions of years since the earth has existed. But if you look at the extraterrestrial sources as the earth changes ecliptic and changes rotation around the sun, a pattern of repetition is clear. A recurrent cycle of change resulted when the 100 thousand year elliptical orbit was conflated with the 52 thousand year ecliptic cycle. A repetitive cycle of glaciation and global warming emerged that seemed to follow the past history of these events from known studies throughout the ages by scientists in the field of climatology.

Why do we keep talking about so many environmental problems and rarely solve any? If these are scientific issues, then why can't scientists solve them or at least agree on what to do? In his new book, The Moon in the Nautilus Shell, ecologist Daniel Botkin explains why. For one thing, although we live in a world of constantly changing environments and talk a lot about climate change, most of our environmental laws, policies, and scientific premises are based on the idea that the environment is constant, never changing, except when people affect it. For another, we have lost contact with nature in personal ways. Disconnected from our surroundings, we lack the deep understanding and feelings about the environment to make meaningful judgments. The environment has become just another one of those special interests that interferes with our lives. Poised to be a core text of the twenty-first century environmental movement, The Moon in the Nautilus Shell challenges us to think critically about our role in nature.

Alberta is well known for its fossil treasures, and author John Acorn is as keen on the long-dead creatures of Alberta as he is on the living. Here, John features 80 of the most noteworthy fossils, fossil locations, and fossil hunters from this most palaeontological of provinces. There's more to the story of "deep Alberta" than dinosaurs, but dinosaur fans will find all their favourite beasts here as well -- from Edmontosaurus to Tyrannosaurus rex, and everything in-between. Then there are the surprises, such as the world's oldest pike, the discovery of a venomous mammal, and the fossils found in such unlikely places as Edmonton and Calgary. Prepared with the collaboration of palaeontologists around Alberta, and the world-renowned Royal Tyrrell Museum, this is a book that is long overdue, and that deserves a place on everyone's bookshelf.
