Climate change policy a survey ( )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation Questions surrounding the issue of climate change are evolving from "Is it happening?" to "What can be done about it?" The primary obstacles to addressing it at this point are not scientific but political and economic; nonetheless a quick resolution is unlikely.Ignorance and confusion surrounding the issue -- including a lack of understanding of climate science, its implications for the environment and society, and the range of policy options available -- contributes to the political morass over dealing with climate change in which we find ourselves. Climate Change Policyaddresses that situation by bringing together a wide range of new writings from leading experts that examine the many dimensions of the topics most important in understanding climate change and policies to combat it. Chapters consider: climate science in historical perspective analysis of uncertainties in climate science and policy the economics of climate policy North-South and intergenerational equity issues the role of business and industry in climate solutions policy mechanisms including joint implementation, emissions trading, and the so-called clean development mechanism Regardless of the fate of the Kyoto Protocol, the issues raised in that debate will persist as new climate protection regimes emerge; this volume treats most of those topics. Tying the chapters together is a shared conclusion that climate change is a real and serious problem, and that we as a society have an obligation not merely to adapt to it but to mitigate it in whatever intelligent ways we can develop. Cost-effectiveness is not disdained, but neither is the imperative for valuing species threatened by rapid climate change
Law and economics of international climate change policy by Reimund Schwarze ( Book )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Kyoto Protocol is a landmark international agreement to tackle the problem of global climate change. Most operational details of the Protocol, however, were not decided in Kyoto but deferred to following conferences. This deferral of the details, while probably appropriate to initially reach the agreement, has become a major stepping stone for the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol. This study elaborates in six essays on some of the most pressing policy problems of the Kyoto Protocol. These are the problems of `hot air', the accounting of biological sources and sinks, and the modalities of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). A specific focus of this book is on how the issues of climate change and global sustainable forestry can be linked. The authors develop some new innovative solutions to achieve durability and political acceptability for CDM forest conservation projects, such as escrow account financing and bundling of forest conservation and bioenergy. The sum of fresh insights into up-to-date legal and political problems of the Kyoto Protocol makes this book indispensable for policy makers, negotiators, environmental activists, academics, and anyone involved in post-Kyoto strategies

"This book presents principles of human physiology. Distinctive characteristics of humans and the general view of functions of the human body are addressed. Specific bodily functions and systems such as the digestive process, circulation, respiration, and the cerebro-spinal system are explored. Nutrition, heat, light, electricity, sensation, movement, voice, and speech are discussed. The influence of the nervous system on the organic functions is considered. Generation, family, and developmental stages are also examined." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
