An accessible introduction to climate change that outlines key scientific, economic, and political issues, reviews how the global community has addressed the issue to date, and discusses the options being explored for further action. Climate Change: A Reference Handbook offers readers a way to separate science from politics on this crucial and often contentious issue. The history of the scientific discovery of climate change began in the early 19th century when ice ages and other natural changes in paleoclimate were first suspected and the natural greenhouse effect first identified. In the late 19th century, scientists first argued that human emissions of greenhouse gases could change the other theories of climate change were advanced.
Get this from a library! Climate change: science and policy implications. [Jane A Leggett; Library of Congress. Congressional Research Service.] -- Almost all scientists agree that the Earth's climate is changing, having warmed by to o Celsius ( to o Fahrenheit) since the Industrial Revolution. Science indicates that the Earth's. Recent work at the “science in society” end of climate change research—notably Dessler and Parson's book The Science and Politics of Climate Change29and Hulme's Why We Disagree About Climate Change30—pointed to the complexities (and crude realities) of climate change policy debates in which the values of scientific objectivity collide with narrow economic interests.

The Costs of Kyoto: Climate Change Policy And Its Implications. There are many resources available that describe the implications of climate change.
Some present information on historically observed changes (e.g., temperature, precipitation) while others project changes into the future based on alternative scenarios (e.g. frequency of intense storms in the future).
“Climate Change Science and Policy is the first book to successfully combine a discussion of the current state of climate science with ideas for climate change mitigation in a comprehensive, yet surprisingly readable, collection of papers by authors working in both the physical and social sciences.
Climate change is an aspect of environmental science that has been studied throughout the centuries. There are a number of historical and scientific theories that suggest there is a link between climate change and human advancement from prehistoric to modern times.
The IPCC is the United Nations body assigned with the task of providing policymakers with regular assessments on climate change and its implications. It utilises the expertise of scientists around the world to produce comprehensive assessment reviews every 8 years or so, and a number of more focused ‘special reports’ in between.

Climate action is goal 13 of UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Future impacts of climate change depend on climatic changes, the level of climate change policy, both mitigation and adaptation, and socio-economic status and development pathways.
To investigate the climate change policy impact of socio-economic development pathways, we develop three pathways. Climate change controls represent a market shift; the formation of new markets in pollution, pollution credits, money and emission abatement technology.
And in any such transition, there will be winners and losers, those that embrace the shift and those that resist it. Climate change presents perhaps the most profound challenge ever to have confronted human social, political, and economic systems.
The stakes are massive, the risks and uncertainties severe, the economics controversial, the science besieged, the politics bitter and complicated, the psychology puzzling, the impacts devastating, the interactions with other environmental and non .Cambridge Core - Environmental Policy, Economics and Law - Climate Change and Ocean Governance - edited by Paul G.
