About the book

This book contains studies of human-induced warming of Earth’s atmosphere during the Anthropocene and the contemporary challenges this warming generates vis a vis changing climates. Chapters address matters regaring global warming and climate change ranging from geophysical (physics, chemistry, etc.) processes of global warming and climate change to the impacts that changing climates have on humans and other components of the biosphere. Humans must adjust to, adapt to, and/or mitigate the effects of local climate changes, and human systems must be modified to meet the needs of people and to diminish the rate of future warming. Human adjustments are needed in virtually every aspect of modern life: food production, social relations, housing, transportation, land use, economic systems, politics and governance, trade, international relations, resource use, and hazards. We need to adapt the organization of our lives – spatial patterns of development, movement, and settlement, and the way we think about our environments. We need to mitigate those impacts that are beyond our capacities to adapt or adjust. These changes will produce significant costs, but they offer opportunities for improving human use and occupation of Earth’s surface; we can inch toward a sustainable balance with Earth’s systems.
