Climate Change Futures: Health, Ecological and Economic Dimensions
Paul R. Epstein (ed); Evan Mills (ed)
Global climate change & the ripples of that change will affect every aspect of life, from municipal budgets for snowplowing to the spread of infectious & respiratory diseases. Climate is already changing, & quite rapidly, & the scientific community warns of more abrupt & greater change in the future. This multidimensional assessment of climate change includes trends, case studies & scenarios -- with a focus on health, ecological & economic dimensions. One surprise is the vulnerability of the energy sector -- the primary source of increased heat in Earth systems. The risks to oil production compound the threats to the electricity grid from heat waves & the instabilities of pipelines grounded in thawing tundra. Illustrations.
