The climate solutions consensus by David E Blockstein( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2007, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize (with former Vice President Al Gore) for its reporting on the human causes of climate change. In 2008, the National Council for Science and the Environment reported that the acceleration of climate change is already faster than the IPCC projected only a year earlier. How we deal with the rapid environmental changes, and the human forces that are driving these changes, will be among the defining issues of our generation. Climate Solutions Consensus presents an agenda for America. It is the first major consensus statement by the nation's leading scientists, and it provides specific recommendations for federal policies, for state and local governments, for businesses, and for colleges and universities that are preparing future generations who will be dealing with a radically changed climate. The book draws upon the recommendations developed by more than 1200 experts who participated in the National Council for Science and the Environment's 8th National Conference on Science, Policy and the Environment. After clearly presenting the science behind climate change and its solutions, Climate Solutions Consensus presents practical, results-oriented approaches for minimizing climate change and its impacts. It clearly spells out options for technological, societal, and policy actions. And it deals head-on with controversial topics, including nuclear energy, ocean fertilization and atmospheric geo-engineering. One of the book's key conclusions is that climate solutions are about much more than energy sources. They involve reexamining everything people do with an eye toward minimizing climate impacts. According to these scientists, the time to act is now. With clarity and urgency, they tell us exactly what needs to be done to start reversing the driving factors behind climate change, minimizing their consequences, and adapting to what is beyond our power to stop

Earth structure : an introduction to structural geology and tectonics by Ben A Van der Pluijm( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text introduces the basic principles of structural geology and tectonics to undergraduate students. It covers the description and analysis of geological structures in the Earth's crust; guides students through the principles of stress, strain, and rheology; and describes mechanisms contributing to rock deformation. Contains regional case studies that allow students to apply the knowledge that they have gained from the earlier parts of the book
